Family Physicians' Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Results of the June 2022 CFPC Members Survey on COVID-19
It is critically important to know how family doctors are caring for their patients and communities as front-line health workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) surveyed its more than 42,000 members in 2020, 2021, and 2022. We told their COVID-19 stories at the start of the pandemic. The results of the June 2022 survey show how family doctors continue to adapt their practices, as well as the concerns they have for the well-being of their patients and themselves.
Highlights of the 2022 CFPC Members Survey on COVID-19 are available online.
