Between 1997 and 2008, substantial federal and provincial investments are dedicated to improving the delivery of primary health care in Canada. Yet a common measurement and evaluation framework for understanding this sector, and the impact of renewal efforts, is lacking.

CHSPR has developed a results-based logic model for primary health care using the Treasury Board of Canada accountability framework, policy analysis, research evidence and broad consultation.

This logic model should focus and unify planning and evaluative efforts by enabling diverse stakeholders to work from a shared conceptual foundation of the main inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes of this sector. It defines the areas in which information, evaluation and evidence are needed for planning, implementing and reporting on primary health care renewal.
