About Primary Health Care

Primary health care (PHC) is a health care system that supports Albertans to be as healthy as they can be.

Primary health care draws on the expertise of many different providers working together to provide seamless care by sharing:

  • perspectives
  • expertise
  • resources
  • accountability

It is important for health professionals working in primary health care to have access to the latest, evidence-based resources, tools and education to assist with the delivery of quality care to patients.
