Patient Education Committee

The Patient Education Committee, a standing committee of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), coordinates the development and dissemination of high-quality and up-to-date evidence-based health care information resources for patients, and for family physicians to support the unique role they play in their patients’ health care.

We have online patient education brochures on various topics of interest that patients and family physicians can access as they work to supplement patients’ understanding of their health conditions and needs.

For information about materials, tools, and website content review criteria, please see the Patient Education Committee Content Review Guidelines under the References/Resources tab.
