Primary Care Networks and CHCs: Webinar

Primary Care Networks and CHCs: Webinar

BCACHC was pleased to partner with the Ministry of Health and Doctors of BC to host a webinar on Community Health Centres and Primary Care Networks (PCNs). PCNs are the key mechanism by which team-based care is delivered in BC, linking a mix of service designs, including the CHC model. Through this model, primary care is designed locally and collaboratively based on needs and service gaps.
