Tell your story: primary care engagement in a regional primary care alliance (LMPCA)

Please consider participating in a research study conducted by Dr Shannon Sibbald and her team at Western University.


Why?

This study aims to share the story and success of a regional primary care alliance (LMPCA) and explore primary care physician engagement. This opportunity will help shape physician engagement in London-Middlesex, and provide a chance for members to reflect, celebrate and showcase the LMPCA’s success stories to be an exemplar across provincial primary care alliances.
