• Welcome to the WestView PCN!

    WestView Primary Care Network is a locally developed initiative, in which local family doctors work with Alberta Health Services to improve the delivery of basic, everyday health services for patients.

    What is primary care?  Primary care is the first point of contact people have with the health system - it's where you and your family receive care for your everyday health needs. 






 

 

 

Choose Wisely Alberta– A Healthy Conversation- A New Video for PCNs!!

Choosing Wisely Alberta supports physicians and their patients to engage in healthy conversations about the overuse of tests/procedures and to make smart and effective care choices . Choosing Wisely Alberta is currently working with PCNs to provide useful resources that PCNs can use with their patients. The April 30 edition of PCN News article “Choosing Wisely Alberta– A Healthy Conversation“ indicated that Choosing Wisely Canada had partnered with the The College of Family Physicians of Canada to produce a great Whiteboard video from Dr. Mike Evans* entitled “Choosing Wisely Do More Screening Tests Lead to Better Health?”  This informative video provides very practical advice to patients about:

  • When is screening really not required
  • Strong physician and patient relationships lead to more effective screening
  • Focusing on prevention-healthy behaviors customized to each patient’s needs

To view the videos see:
