Primary Care Toolkit

The primary care system is the “first line” of clinical services and an entry point to the health-care system.

CNA’s Primary Care Toolkit is a resource for registered nurses and nurse practitioners building collaborative teams in primary care settings such as family practices and walk-in clinics. This toolkit can help registered nurses optimize their role in a multi-disciplinary primary care team as they integrate a primary health-care focus more effectively into their practice. Primary care teams, which include family physicians, registered nurses and other health-care professionals working side-by-side as partners, produce better health outcomes, improved access to services, more efficient use of resources and greater satisfaction for both patients and providers.

The toolkit is designed to be a comprehensive resource for accessing information and resources on evidence-based care. It was developed under the leadership of the Canadian Nurses Association with the support of the Canadian Family Practice Nurses Association and other health-care partners.
