  • CPHCRIN's Strategic Plan Now Available!

    The Canadian Primary Health Care Research and Innovation Network (CPHCRIN) has prepared a working document to promote discussion amongst the CBPHC research community on the purpose and activities of the Network. We are looking to get your opinion and suggestions on how we can ensure our strategic direction will meet the needs of the community we aim to serve and support!


  • Who We Are

    NetworkThe Canadian Primary Health Care Research & Innovation Network (CPHCRIN) is a newly established pan-Canadian research, training and policy network, composed of researchers and stakeholders in community-based primary health care (CBPHC). CPHCRIN aims to facilitate the scale-up of innovative models of CBPHC in order to improve the quality, accessibility and cost-effectiveness of primary health care in Canada.


  • The Definition of Primary Health Care

    In 1978, the World Health Organization (WHO) adopted the primary health care approach (PHC) as the basis for effective delivery of health services as outlined in the Declaration of Alma-Ata (WHO, 1978). PHC is both a philosophy of health care and a model for providing services that support health. Effective PHC is community-based, promotes healthy lifestyles as a pathway to disease and injury prevention, provides continuing care of chronic conditions and recognizes the importance of the broad determinants of health (Health Council of Canada, 2005). PHC embraces a wide suite of services and involves a broad range of health-care providers (Canadian Institute for Health Information [CIHI], 2006). The following definitions are offered to further clarify this conceptualization.

Ontario SPOR SUPPORT Unit (OSSU) IMPACT Awards - Call for Proposals

The Ontario SPOR SUPPORT Unit (OSSU) has issued its first Call for Proposals for the newly created IMPACT Awards.

The new research funding competition will support patient-oriented research projects that advance the science of implementation research and facilitate knowledge translation and exchange in the areas of prevention, care in the community and at home, and health system sustainability.

With a funding envelope of up to $15 million, IMPACT Award grants will be awarded to health researchers whose projects bring together diverse stakeholders—including patients, researchers and other health sector participants—to develop, refine and implement promising new knowledge and practices that will improve patient health outcomes and advance our health system.

Webinar: Why should PBRNs and their members pay attention to theories underlying behavioral change?

The AHRQ PBRN Resource Center (http://pbrn.ahrq.gov/) is hosting a webinar on 12/11/2013. Details below:

PBRNs are involved in many different quality improvement initiatives. One key aspect of quality improvement initiatives focuses on changing clinical behaviors of health professionals. The Theory of Planned Behavior and other related socio-cognitive theories are useful in implementation research as they help implementation researchers identify modifiable factors of behavior change. The use of such theories also helps build the knowledge base of effective implementation interventions for future quality improvement initiatives. During this webinar, Dr. France Légaré will discuss the relevance of socio-cognitive theories for PBRNs and quality improvement initiatives. Dr. Légaré will also review the main socio-cognitive theories that have been found useful in the study of health professional clinical behaviors. Finally, Dr. Légaré will provide examples of implementation research using the Theory of Planned Behavior and other related socio-cognitive theories.

Presented by France Légaré, MD, PhD, CCFP, FCFP, Department of Family Medicine, Laval University
