Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity, & Accessibility (EDIA) Cross-Theme Supports for Team Primary Care

Reflection, Dialogue, Action, & Belonging: 

Addressing health system inequities through an

anti-racism, anti-oppression, & social justice lens

About the Team Primary Care Project

Team Primary Care - Training for Transformation is a unique and timely initiative that aims to accelerate transformative change in the way primary care practitioners train to work together. To do so, it brings together an extensive network of partners to enhance the capacity of interprofessional comprehensive primary care (CPC) through improved training for practitioners, supports for teams, and tools for planners and employers.

Team Primary Care aims to prepare primary care providers to work in teams, in tandem with the health system reforms needed to adopt the delivery of more and better CPC. Ultimately, by better preparing new and existing primary care practitioners, Canadians will have better access to equitable primary care close to home.

Impact of Our Work

Our health system is rife with examples where racism, discrimination, and oppression have created a space that is unsafe, lacks compassion, and leads to poorer health outcomes for many Canadians. The EDIA Theme Projects aim to support primary care teams to understand their contexts through humility, listening, unlearning and relearning, and to address these inequities and injustices that impact patients and their loved ones, but also those who are working and learning within the health system.

As we look ahead, we need to support primary teams through this cultural transformation using a quality improvement approach that integrates humility-based insights into their team, tailored learning experiences, practical application, and mentorship that leads to a robust community of practice. These initial teams will then serve as exemplars and supports for others aspiring to begin this critical journey, for the health of all Canadians and those who have dedicated their lives to work within our health system.
