Primary Care Network Opportunity

Kootenay Boundary (KB) is an early adopter of the Primary Care Network (PCN) approach, with teams of FPs, NPs, RNs, Allied Health, Aboriginal Health Coordinators and other clinical staff working together to increase patient attachment and improve patient care, access, and cultural safety in clinics across the region. To date, 30+ PCN staff have already been hired into the PCN and provide about 5,000 patient encounters per quarter, and more hires are underway. The KB PCN is based on a co-location model, building teams within existing primary care clinics. A learning culture approach, fostered through the KB PCN Learning Lab, links all PCN partners and encourages innovation, collective learning and spreading of successes.
