Overview

The Modernizing Alberta’s Primary Health Care System initiative has been established to strengthen primary health care in Alberta and ensure all Albertans have access to timely, appropriate primary health care services.

Primary health care is the first point of contact Albertans have with the health system, and includes health professionals such as family doctors, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and public health nurses.

This work will engage Alberta primary health care leaders, along with national and global experts, to identify immediate and long-term improvements that can build on the many primary health care successes in Alberta.
