The primary care sector has been undergoing significant changes in Manitoba and Canada in the last 15 years, impacting service delivery and creating knowledge gaps in many areas, as stakeholders across the system seek to optimize integrated, patient-oriented care. Primary health care attends to broader determinants of health, both within primary care, and externally to it.
Addressing these gaps requires research capacity building activities within teams and organizations with an interest in primary care and health research.
November 21 and 22 the primary health care research community and key stakeholders in Manitoba came together to develop an action plan to build and strengthen primary care and research capacity in Manitoba. Including next steps and identifying supports needed to sustain and further research activities and connections.
Materials and reports from the meeting will be posted here as they become available.
