Team-based care: Family doctors and nurses partner to improve patient care in BC communities

Family doctors in communities around BC are working with nurses to provide patient care in both family practice and community settings. Different team-based approaches are improving patient care in various communities around the province. This includes an innovative model piloted by Fraser Northwest Division to improve care for homebound frail elderly patients that has expanded to other Fraser Health communities. A new story collection highlights these approaches and how strong partnerships between divisions and health authorities are enabling the move toward an integrated system of primary care.
