What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)
A Primary Care Network is a geographic space where community-based primary healthcare providers are networked together.
Primary Care Network members work together to collaboratively provide comprehensive, patient-centered, culturally informed team-based healthcare to meet the needs of patients as well as the community.
Primary Care Networks work better for patients – so they can get the care when and where they need it – and for the care providers – so they are able to care for their patients while being supported by an interdisciplinary team of providers within a community network.
Who are members and part of the team?
- Family Doctors
- Nurse Practitioners
- Registered Nurses
- Mental Health Clinicians
- Clinical Pharmacists
- Indigenous Wellness Advocates
- Social Workers
- Registered Dieticians
The Comox Valley Primary Care Network will also be able to provide supports for Indigenous Wellness and Traditional Healing.
In the Comox Valley, the Primary Care Network is being designed to flex and adapt to new healthcare needs as they emerge. We are learning as a Primary Care Network and this includes hearing from the members and patients about what is working well, what new services should be added and how we can improve as we go.
