Alberta PCs’ controversial clinic plan finds traction in poll

Of the dozens of promises rolled out on Alberta’s campaign trail, few have proven more controversial than one: family care clinics. The collaborative care clinics – a model used in several other provinces- would put nurses, doctors and other practitioners under one roof.
The notion of more community-level health care is, of course, popular in theory, and experts agree multidisciplinary care is a worthy goal. “[Doctors] do a great job in what they’re doing, but people’s needs are greater than just that,” says UBC associate professor Sabrina Wong, who studies primary health care.
