AFHTO 2013 Conference: wrap-up and links to valuable resources

October 24, 2013

Close to 900 people took part in the AFHTO 2013 Conference – Leadership in Healthcare for Ontarians. This theme ran through the conference from Lance Secretan’s inspiring opening to the closing panel debate -- “Be it resolved that health system transformation must be led by Primary Care.’” Leadership shone through in the pre-conference activities – the first meeting of the provincial Quality Improvement Decision Support (QIDS) Steering Committee, Executive Director Advisory Council, networking sessions for the various types of health professionals working in FHTs and the FHT leadership session. Leadership was also demonstrated by our AFHTO members as they unanimously ratified a bylaw that opens AFHTO membership to nurse practitioner-led clinics and any organization that provides interprofessional, team-based comprehensive primary care in Ontario. The AFHTO annual conference continues to be THE best learning and networking opportunity for people who work in and with family health teams, nurse practitioner-led clinics and others providing comprehensive, interprofessional primary care. Please help us to continue:
