CFPC Releases New Guidance Report on Advancing Family Medicine Research in Canada

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) is pleased to announce the release of its research guidance report, titled “Advancing Family Medicine Research in Canada: A Guidance Report for the CFPC’s Future Role and Action.” This comprehensive report outlines specific roles and concrete actions that the CFPC can undertake as a champion of family medicine research.

Drawing on extensive consultations and research, the report demonstrates how family medicine research can address the critical challenges facing the discipline today. It will serve as a guiding document for the CFPC in developing strategies to support our members, advance the field of family medicine, and contribute to a stronger, evidence-informed healthcare system for all Canadians.

Your continued support and collaboration are invaluable in CFPC’s work towards advancing family medicine research in Canada.

My name is Smitha Yaltho and I feel privileged to work as a family physician. Why? I believe that being a family physician has been the best job any physician can hope to have. I have personally grown in my own abilities and skill-sets with diverse opportunities in ambulatory practice, acute care and work in Facility Living.  Working in primary care has been exciting and has also afforded me tremendous opportunities for growth while still remaining stimulating in its complexity.  I believe that Family physicians are trusted partners in patient care –  every step of the way. 

Why are you volunteering to serve on this committee?
I currently have an interest in Physician Leadership and  trauma informed care.  I have served as a director with the Board of Directors with the Edmonton North PCN, Edmonton’s largest PCN. Thereafter, I have worked as the Director of Medical Services with CapitalCare (also based in Edmonton) for almost 6 years. It is my express wish that my contribution on the ACFP board of directors will highlight the excellence of family medicine that exists right here and now within the Alberta health care system. 

What about the ACFP’s work do you find most valuable?
Ability to highlight and further support the excellence of primary care right here in Alberta.
