August 2011
CFPC

The objective of this tool is to provide a guide for Canadian family physicians on factors affecting practice panel size and the consideration of measures of performance and quality of care. Although, there is insufficient evidence to establish benchmarks or recommendations for the number of patients for which family physicians should be responsible, this resource acts as a Best Advice to: define panel size, provide approaches, identify factors that affect panel size and address the measures that gauge performance.
