Dr. Brian Hutchison, McMaster University
“Strengthening Primary Care In Ontario: Needs and Opportunities for Research and Evaluation”

Some of you were interested in the background papers Phil Graham referred to in his presentation. Below are the papers for your convenience:

The Strengthening Primary Care initiative grew out of the McMaster Health Forum’s June 2010 stakeholder dialogue on “Supporting Quality Improvement in Primary Healthcare in Ontario”. It was chaired by Susan Fitzpatrick, Assistant Deputy Minister, Negotiations and Accountability Management Division and overseen by a planning group consisting of the Ontario Medical Association, Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario, Ontario College of Family Physicians and Association of Ontario Health Centres. The process involved working groups on Quality, Access, Efficiency, Accountability and Governance. AFHTO participated in 3 of these 5 groups. The synthesis report was developed thereafter. A draft was discussed with participants in the working groups in September. The final product, entitled Strategic Directions for Strengthening Primary Care in Ontario: Overview of the Recommendations of the Primary Healthcare Planning Group states, “it is not meant to be a stand-alone document, rather a high-level summary and synthesis of the recommendations of PHPG’s five Working Group reports and our joint grouping of the strategic directions for strengthening primary care in Ontario under five core themes:

  1. Integration Supported by Governance
  2. Patient Centered Approach
  3. Strategically Aligned Goals and Measures
  4. Accountability Levers and Incentives
  5. Continuous Quality Improvement
