• Family Doctor Week

    Colleen Lindholm | November 3, 2016

    The Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) once again wishes to celebrate Family Doctor Week in Canada (November 7th – 12th).  This is the 13th annual Family Doctor Week in Canada – acknowledging the outstanding contributions of Canadian family doctors for their dedication to their patients and the delivery of high-quality health care.

    As many of you know a fundamental part of the Camrose PCN’s vision is to support family doctors in delivering coordinated, quality rural primary care with the support of other health providers.  Over the past eight years the PCN has worked with family doctors in a variety of settings in the communities of Camrose, Bashaw, Daysland, Forestburg, Hardisty and Tofield.  We are very proud of the local PCN programming that has been developed - dedicated to patients and patient care. 

    We know the importance of a positive relationship between patients and their family doctors. A family doctor is an important part of the patient’s health home – their own network of their family doctor, health care providers and community organizations all working together in providing the best possible primary care.

    During Family Doctor week, the Camrose PCN will be conducting a Primary Care and You Survey, which asks individuals to tell us about their relationship with their family doctor as well as their experience with their family doctor’s office and the Camrose PCN.

    The information we received from this survey participants will provide good insight into how people understand what Primary Care is and how it is being accessed in our community.

    To access the survey, click here or drop by your family doctor’s office. In appreciation to those that fill out the short survey, there will be a draw for an iPad mini.

    On behalf of the PCN, I want to take this opportunity to recognize and thank the PCN Board of Directors which includes Dr. Nichol, Dr. Bredesen, Dr. Pasha, Dr. Niemann and Dr. Letley as well as all the PCN Family Doctors for all they do.       

    I encourage you to celebrate Family Doctor week by please taking a moment to acknowledge and thank your family doctor.  A listing of all our Camrose PCN family doctors can be found here.
