All Alberta physicians will care for patients in a supportive culture, driven by evidence-informed, reflective practice improvement.
The PLP creates actionable clinical information by engaging with physicians, teams, patients, and partners to co-create sustainable solutions to advance practice.
To effect meaningful change and advance practice, we need an engaged approach based on the principles of implementation science, knowledge translation, quality improvement, medical education, behaviour change, and human-centered design. We partner and collaborate with system stakeholders, interdisciplinary physicians, and their clinical teams who have an intimate knowledge of the barriers that their patients and communities face. By leveraging their clinical expertise, we can better understand and mobilize emergent solutions, and jointly craft innovative new ways to advance practice.
