A comprehensive plan to enhance primary health care will be recommended by a strategic advisory team made up of local primary health care leaders, patients, and specialists. The work of the strategic advisory council will be influenced by a group of domestic and foreign specialists. Indigenous voices and knowledge will be incorporated into the effort, according to a panel of specialists in Indigenous health.
As part of Modernizing Alberta's Primary Health Care System (MAPS), three advisory groups will be established to determine how primary healthcare can be improved now and over the subsequent five to ten years.
According to Premier Jason Kenney, “this work will not only help stabilize and strengthen today’s primary health care system, but will identify innovations that can be implemented to meet Albertans’ health needs in the years ahead. Prioritizing health care in the community will lead to a more robust and resilient health system overall.”
MAPS will pay particular attention to these issues. Additionally, it will work to guarantee that First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people have access to high-quality, culturally appropriate healthcare that is also free from prejudice and sensitive to their particular medical requirements.
This winter, a forum on innovation will be organised to bring together panellists, stakeholders, and others involved in primary health care to talk about ways to overcome present obstacles and highlight global and domestic ideas.
In the spring of 2023, a final report with a suggested course of action to update Alberta's primary healthcare system will be published.
