Join us for a Conversation on Collaborative Family Practice Teams


As Nova Scotians, it is important to stay healthy and well. When we have a health concern, we visit our family practice. Our health needs are changing and family practice is changing too.

Collaborative family practice teams have doctors, nurse practitioners, family practice nurses and other health providers working together to provide primary care in communities.

We know that accessing a family doctor or nurse practitioner can be a challenge for some people. Nova Scotia Health Authority is creating more and strengthening existing collaborative family practice teams across the province to improve access to the primary care you need.

We would like to share more about collaborative family practice teams, hear your thoughts, and learn what we need to know to make these teams a success in Nova Scotia.


Community Conversations:

25 community conversations have been held across Nova Scotia in 2018. A report on what we heard from these conversations will be available soon.


Participate Online:

We invite you to watch the following three videos, and then join the conversation on collaborative family practice teams by answering a few questions below.

You can read more about collaborative family practice teams on Nova Scotia Health Authority's website, and see a list of locations across the province.
