Reflections on Ontario's primary healthcare journey

Healthc Pap. 2008;8(2):45-7; discussion 64-7. doi: 10.12927/hcpap.2008.19708.


Despite the prevailing opinion and consensus around how primary healthcare systems should be changed, there is very little agreement on how this should happen and a surprising paucity of research and evaluative evidence related to both system organization and mechanisms for change. The authors reflect on Ontario's experience with primary healthcare renewal and provide insight into lessons learned.
