Featuring Dr. Tara Kiran
Opening Plenary- Team-based care for all: Patient and Public Perspectives on the future of primary care

In 2022, Dr. Kiran launched OurCare, the largest effort to engage the public on the future of primary care in Canadian history. She will present key findings from the OurCare national survey on patient’s experiences, preferences, and priorities for primary care.

She will also share findings from in-depth public dialogues in Ontario, sharing values and recommendations that the public agree on, including views on team-based care and specific perspectives of marginalized groups. Find out more.
