The Patient’s Medical Home

The Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) is a vision presented by the CFPC for the future of family practice in Canada. The PMH reflects and responds to the changing needs of populations in Canada. It also reinforces the physician–patient relationship and the importance of the Four Principles of Family Medicine.
