Research is the root of family medicine.
Projects that arise from questions generated in community-based practice are essential to family medicine and to the development of health care strategies that lead to better outcomes for patients.
Alberta has outstanding medical researchers and facilities that contribute to the discipline of family medicine by demonstrating the unique value family physicians bring to their patient communities and the health care system.
ACFP endeavours to highlight research rooted in family medicine.
Appropriate, meaningful collaboration among researchers in primary, secondary, and tertiary care settings, medical research institutes, and academic environments results in substantially improved patient outcomes, disease prevention strategies, and health service delivery methods

“Family medicine is the cornerstone of the health care system in Canada. Family medicine research creates our evidentiary base which forms the foundation of our discipline.
The ability to identify, rigorously study, and cite our own evidence is essential to establishing the value and impact of family medicine on our patients and the Canadian health care system.”
The ACFP has a long-standing commitment to research that is well grounded in family practice and supports the CFPC’s Section of Researchers’ (SOR) vision and mandate.
