About MAAP-BC

The Models and Access Atlas of Primary Care-British Columbia (MAAP-BC) addresses knowledge gaps in how primary care practices are structured in BC, what accessibility and comprehensiveness are like for patients, and the impact on patient care outcomes. These findings are necessary for evidence-based policy development and evaluation.

The vast majority of health care in BC is community based primary health care provided by family physicians (FPs). Identifying gaps and opportunities for innovations (e.g., collaborative care models) and studying their impacts are key to providing the best quality primary health care for the citizens of British Columbia. This project builds on the work started in Nova Scotia (MAAP-NS) by Dr. Emily Marshall.

Project Goals

To accurately describe:

Current access to family physicians providing community-based primary care in BC.

Geographic distribution of primary care resources (FPs and Clinics).

Provision of after hours care for community-based primary care clinics.

Practice and provider characteristics of FPs in BC.

And to inform identification of:

Current distribution of health human resources (specifically FPs).

Gaps in primary care provision that could be addressed with new policies.
