Planning for renewal : mapping primary health care in British Columbia Watson, Diane E. (Diane Elizabeth), 1963-; Krueger, Hans; Mooney, Dawn; Black, Charlyn, 1954-


The goal of this project was to quickly compile a snapshot of the PHC system in British Columbia- and the health of its users- to inform policy and planning for the renewal of this sector. We created a set of profiles to reflect different facets of the PHC system, drawing primarily on information from readily available sources, but also conducting some important new analytic work. Each indicator, or profile, was mapped to advance our understanding of geographic variation and distribution across the province’s six health authorities, 16 health service delivery areas, and 89 local health areas, and presented in a way to illustrate the relationship between health status and PHC services use.
