    When the clock starts ticking: Wait times in primary care. Discussion Paper.

    For many years the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) has advocated on behalf of Canadians for appropriate and timely access to all aspects of health care through their family physicians. The College’s positions have taken into account the needs of Canadians as patients waiting in line to receive services throughout the continuum of their health care. This includes not just the wait time between the first visit with a consulting specialist and the patient’s definitive procedure, surgery or treatment – but also the time between the patient’s first visit with his/her family physician and when required, a subsequent visit with a consultant. It also includes the time it takes for a Canadian who does not have a family physician to find one.

    Wait times. Position Statement.

    All Canadians should be given an opportunity to have a family doctor to ensure universal access to medically necessary health care services.  Each province/territory must ensure care is provided for its population within the pan-Canadian wait times benchmarks and targets.  Standardized pan-Canadian criteria defining eligibility of patients to be entered onto wait lists must be developed by an expert panel, including family physicians.

    Triple C competency-based curriculum. Report of the Working Group on Postgraduate Curriculum Review – Part 2

    The Triple C Competency-based Curriculum Report – Part 2 aims to assist stakeholders in the full implementation of the Triple C Competency-based Curriculum (Triple C). It gathers expert opinions, resources and tools developed by members of various CFPC educational committees, and intends to guide the change toward the Triple C curriculum. Triple C, the renewed approach to the delivery of family medicine education in Canada, was presented in 2011 with the publication of the Triple C Competency-based Curriculum Report – Part 1. Triple C Report – Part 1 provided the direction for change. It defined the elements of a competency-based curriculum and presented recommendations for CFPC’s adoption of Triple C. Triple C Report – Part 2 focuses on advancing successful implementation strategies. Guided by the Triple C Report – Part 2, the CFPC looks forward to its ongoing collaboration with all colleagues involved in family medicine education. Collectively we can achieve our vision of graduating family physicians who are ready to begin the practice of comprehensive family medicine in any community in Canada.
