Family physicians play a central role in the delivery of personal, comprehensive primary health care. As a frontline service, family practice includes diagnosis and treatment, management of chronic conditions, disease prevention, health promotion, emergency care, teaching, and advocacy on behalf of patients. May 19, 2021 is World Family Doctor Day and this year’s theme is Building the Future with Family Doctors. The Family Practice Renewal Program, in partnership with our Family Practice Networks, would like to thank family doctors in Newfoundland and Labrador for their contribution to the health care system and their commitment to leadership and innovation in family practice.
