June 15, 2018

The Shalloway FPN will provide the family physicians with a structure and supports to address physician and practice issues in our local area. Through Central area physician consultations, the FPN has identified several priorities to start with, including:

  • Local proactive FPN recruitment & retention activities;
  • Delivery of local wellness programs for physicians and their practices;
  • Providing continuing professional programs for care of the elderly;
  • Working with Central Health to improve care of older adults, ensuring physicians are more effectively integrated into their care and improving the long‐term care patient referral and management processes;
  • Developing, adapting, and ensuring family physicians can avail of practice and patient supports through local youth mental health programming;
  • Implementing family physician‐centric communication and collaboration mechanisms to address common priorities with the RHA; and,
  • Leveraging family physician experience with practice management and sharing of clinical expertise between physicians.
