The Family Practice Renewal Program aims to transform family practice for better health.

Get Started By Exploring Our Programs

What We're All About

The Family Practice Renewal Program (FPRP) is a joint initiative of the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) and the Department of Health and Community Services (DHCS). FPRP recognizes that improved population health and health system sustainability requires a renewed focus on primary health care reform, and on family practice reform in particular, and that family physicians have an important role to play in the improvement and full integration of primary care and primary health care services and supports. The FPRP has three core initiatives: Family Practice Networks, Fee Code Program, and Practice Improvement Program.

Family Practice Networks (FPNs) are non-profit corporations, comprised of and led by family physicians.  Family Practice Networks (FPNs) provide mechanisms to address local physician and practice issues and ultimately aid in physician recruitment and retention. FPNs also enable community-based family physicians, in collaboration with their Regional Health Authorities, to identify and address common health care goals/gaps in local communities, and in so doing, improve delivery of primary health care services.

The Practice Improvement Program supports evidence-based change management in a variety of target areas that support the transformation of family practice for better health. Key PIP programs include MyQ and MyPractice.

The Fee Code Program. Enhancements to the fee for-service schedule, through a Fee Code Initiative program, are intended to achieve patient, physician, and health system benefits such as comprehensive care, collaboration with other providers, and improvements in patient access. There are now 250+ family physicians registered to access FPRP codes for shared care, telephone, and enhanced care of patients with COPD.

Blended Capitation Program contributes to a health care system in which all citizens have timely access to excellent team-based primary care that provides comprehensive, continuous primary care to Attached patients. The Program will enable, promote, and support team based primary care, comprehensive family medicine, greater attachment, access to and quality of care for patients, and improved recruitment, retention, and professional satisfaction for physicians.

The Family Practice Renewal Program (FPRP) is responsible for administration of the Program, including project management, physician engagement, enrolling physician practices, entering into agreements with physician practices, and practice improvement initiatives to support successful practices.
