2022 YEAR IN REVIEW
Reflections from the President
While the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) continues to advance excellence in family medicine, it is also important to take the opportunity to review and reflect on the year gone by.
Your continued persistence and commitment to high quality patient care has not gone unnoticed this past year. The ACFP recognizes that many of our members are working in less than ideal conditions. We appreciate all that you do in continuing to care for Albertans. Meanwhile, the ACFP and our partners are engaging in conversations and discussions we hope will make positive differences for your patients, your teams, and yourselves.
Throughout the year, the ACFP has worked hard to deliver a number of valuable initiatives including:
- Updating the ACFP Strategic Framework in response to discussions that took place at ACFP Future of Family Medicine events. With the guidance of consultants, the ACFP Board and staff have taken a critical look at our Strategic Plan and reaffirmed our organization’s direction given our current practice
- Engaging with government relations consultants who have been providing guidance on the ACFP’s activities as we ramp up to a provincial election
- Planning of valuable continuing professional development (CPD) events (in person and online) that provide members with opportunities to expand their
capacity and build connection during times of isolation
We sincerely thank you so much for your support in 2022 so that we could fully engage in these initiatives on your behalf. We have every confidence that these will lead to positive changes in 2023
