2019 Concurrent Sessions

Our concurrent session presentations are organized into six 45-minute timeslots (two on Day 1, four on Day 2) and six themes. To help you plan your conference schedule, we have arranged the sessions by date, concurrent session, time, theme, and title.

Concurrent Session Selection

Concurrent session presentations were chosen by working groups consisting of AFHTO members across Ontario, representing the full breadth of professions within collaborative primary care. Submissions were chosen for reflecting the conference theme, usefulness/applicability to interprofessional primary care teams, innovativeness, evidence of impact, and clear learning objectives.
