Frameworks and Primary Healthcare Policy

Stephen Duckett

Abstract

Healthcare reform in Canada needs to start with primary care reform, putting patients and their caregivers at the centre of the health system. Although the directions are well accepted, primary care reform requires changes to organizational structures (moving toward multidisciplinary practice) and to physician remuneration to be effective. Without action on these system-level enablers, little real action will be able to occur in repositioning the healthcare system.
