Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative

Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative

The Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) staff and Board consulted with the ACFP Opioid Response Task Force (Family Physicians from around the province in different practice types) in December 2016 to inform the primary health care opioid response.

In late 2017, the Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative (PHC ORI) was established.  This was a $9.5 million grant based on the recommendations of the former Ministers Opioid Emergency Response Commission (MOERC).  Over the next three years, under the leadership of the ACFP and in partnership with the Alberta Medical Association (AMA), Alberta Health Services (AHS), Zone PCNs, and Alberta Health, this initiative defined new approaches to address the opioid crisis, building competency and capacity within primary care.

The Primary Health Care Opioid Response Initiative resulted in numerous successes while also uncovering important challenges.  The Year 2 Summary Evaluation Report presents Year 2 of the evaluation findings completed for the initiative activities, and their advancement towards the goals and objectives.
