Comprehensiveness: Addressing the main health issues of the community and providing preventive, acute, and chronic disease care through a multidisciplinary team of professional, paraprofessional, and lay workers.
Continuity: Coordinating life-long care across all parts of the service continuum.
Participation: Supporting our patients’ engagement in all aspects of health care – from self-management to policy-making.
Quality: Systematically promoting safety, implementing evidence-based care, and tracking health outcomes.
