“The College of Family Physicians of Canada releases a practical guide on patient-centredness in family practice.”
The first pillar of the Patient’s Medical Home is patient-centredness. Including the patient as a participant in planning and decision-making is associated with many positive health outcomes. Importantly, it is care Canadians want – the kind that focuses on their needs and ensures their preferences are taken into account.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada strongly supports striving for patient-centred care and is pleased to provide family physicians with this Best Advice Guide.
The guide, a latest in the Best Advice Guide series, briefly summarizes the benefits of patient-centred care and provides concrete advice for physicians and their teams.
