Nonetheless, with fluctuations in governmental support and gaps in physician supply, the province’s primary care is in a precarious state. Dr. Lee and Dr. McDonald will speak to how their collaborative research efforts support a path forward for primary care in Alberta, including the measurement of family physician workforce supply, insights from cognitive task analysis, and consideration of alternative payment models.
