AFHTO 2019 Conference

AFHTO 2019 Conference “Health System Integration Built on the Foundation of Team-Based Primary Health Care”

Thursday, September 19 and Friday, September 20, 2019
Westin Harbour Castle, One Harbour Square, Toronto, Ontario

Change can come fast and furious, and Ontario’s healthcare system is no exception. With legislation introduced in February, The People’s Health Care Act, 2019, ‘change’ could be considered an understatement. But the fundamentals remain- no matter the structure surrounding them, providing the best possible care for patients remains the priority. And primary health care teams need to position themselves to lead the way in providing patient-centric care. 

‘Integration’ may be the word of the day, but primary care teams already embody it. Interprofessional comprehensive care creates a space, a patient medical home, and evidence shows this home is the best foundation for a high-performing health system. With this, we can truly say we’re providing patient-centred care.

Now accepting concurrent session and poster presentation submissions until April 24, 2019 at 5:00 PM (EDT). Presentations will focus on six themes: 
1. Access to care: improving access to team-based care
2. Continuous care: ensuring seamless transitions for patients across the continuum of care
3. Comprehensive team-based care
4. Patient and family-centred care
5. Community and social accountability
6. Enabling high -performing primary health care
