Enhancing Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Primary Health Care Initiative

EICP Consultations

Gathering input from the entire health care community, and the public, was critical to the success of the Enhancing Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Primary Health Care (EICP) Initiative. To build a "Framework that Fits", the Initiative designed a comprehensive consultation program that engaged all of the key players in primary health care – health care providers themselves, governments, educators, regulators, academics and the patients and clients of primary health care services. EICP consultations involved face-to-face meetings along with formal and informal information exchanges with interested parties and experts. Our consultations included on-line surveys as well to enable as many people as possible to share their views with the EICP team.

This section of the EICP web site will help you understand how our consultations were structured, who attended and most importantly what was said.
