Primary Health Care Opioid Response

​Tackling the opioid crisis in Alberta will require new approaches and an immediate response of the entire health system to change its trajectory. The engagement and response of primary care physicians, their teams and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in Alberta is essential in defining new primary health care approaches to address the crisis and the systemic issues that contribute to the crisis. Through the Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative, the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP), Alberta Medical Association (AMA), Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Zone PCN Committees aligned to support the systematic changes needed for the primary care response.
