AFHTO 2019 Conference on September 19 & 20

Thu, September 19, 2019 - Fri, September 20, 2019
Westin Harbour Castle, One Harbour Square, Toronto, ON


Health System Integration Built on the Foundation of Team-Based Primary Health Care

Tree with many roots


Change can come fast and furious, and Ontario’s healthcare system is no exception. With legislation introduced in February, ‘upheaval’ could be considered an understatement. But the fundamentals remain- no matter the structure surrounding them, patients need care. And primary health care teams need to position themselves to provide this care in the best way possible.

‘Integration’ may be the word of the day, but primary care teams already embody it.

At AFHTO’s 2019 Conference over 800 primary care providers, interprofessional health care providers, patients and community partners will explore how comprehensive care creates the patient medical home.



Evidence shows this home is the best foundation for a high-performing health system, so together we’ll tackle how teams can provide truly patient-centred care and value for all Ontarians.

Registration is now open!
