Primary Care Networks
A primary care network is an approach that brings together different health care professionals to ensure you receive the right care, from the right professional, at the right time.
Prince Edward Island has five primary care networks comprised of family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, diabetes educators, licensed practical nurses, and clerical staff. Some networks also have dietitians and mental health workers.
Patient Medical Homes
Patient medical homes have been formed at five Island primary care locations, beginning the shift in primary health care from solo family practices to collaborative health care and better access to care for Islanders.
Patient Medical Homes deliver team-based care through a model that has been developed and endorsed by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC).
Mental Health & Addictions
A redevelopment and expansion is currently underway with the goal of ensuring all people living in PEI will have equal opportunity to achieve and maintain the best possible mental health and well-being throughout their lifetime.
Increasing access to mental health and addiction services and programming through a Community First approach is a crucial pillar of the current government’s commitment to improving health care.
