As part of the ongoing development of the Patient’s Medical Home (PMH), the CFPC released its Best Advice Guide on Social Determinants of Health. The PDF versions of the document available on the PMH
The social determinants of health, such as income, disability, education, employment , food security etc are widely recognized as contributing to health outcomes. The guide details how through clinical, community and advocacy work, family physicians can act as powerful agents of positive change.
We anticipate that this guide will be a helpful addition to the PMH toolbox.
