Rural perspectives on patient medical homes

Submitted by the GPSC

The introduction of the BC patient medical home last year prompted many rural GPs to reflect on how they are currently working, including working in teams to deliver integrated services and whole-person care that wraps around patients.

“Many small rural communities are ahead of the curve and doing this work very well, out of  necessity,” says Dr Rebecca Lindley, Chair of the Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice.

In a new collection of stories, Dr Lindley and others highlight what is working well in their ongoing work to enable patient medical homes in their communities, including the value and role of creative thinking, leadership, and strong partnerships.
