CFPC Correspondence to the Honourable Mr. Michael Wilson

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is embarking on a selection process for a new President and Chair of the Governing Council, in February 2017. The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) sent the attached correspondence to CIHR, emphasizing the value of primary care research and noting the importance of including stakeholders familiar with this area of research on the selection committee. The CFPC supports and encourages family physician researchers and hopes CIHR will recognize the value of their contributions.

Other advocacy related to family medicine and primary care research recently undertaken includes a visit by a CFPC senior leadership team to the federal health ministry and members of Parliament from various parties.
