AFHTO 2018 Conference on October 24 & 25

October 25, 2018

Relationship Design with Starfield in Mind

Dr. Barbara Starfield was a pioneer in identifying why primary care was so foundational to the health system – we know this as the 4Cs of primary care:

  • CONTINUITY through better relationships,
  • COORDINATION of better transitions,
  • first point of CONTACT into the health care system, and
  • COMPREHENSIVENESS by providing a wide range of services that deal with a broad range of patient problems and needs (‘womb to tomb’ care of the WHOLE person).

Ontario’s health system is ever-changing, but these shifts aren’t always fluid or easy to predict. Each change has the potential for far-reaching implications, but the fundamentals remain- clinical innovations, the latest medical advances… these won’t make a lasting difference unless primary health care sustains and strengthens the relationships that matter to serve to serve #EveryCommunityEveryPatient. At AFHTO’s 2018 Conference over 800 primary care providers, interprofessional health care providers, patients and community partners will explore how we can contribute to a high performing health system. Together we’ll tackle how to make the most of opportunities and minimize challenges, both locally and regionally, to improve health, health care, and value for all Ontarians.
