The Primary Healthcare Research Unit of Memorial University of Newfoundland is pleased to invite you to PriFor 2018, the tenth annual Primary Healthcare Partnership Forum. This conference is presented in partnership with the Atlantic Practice Based Research Network, the Centre for Rural Health Studies, and Memorial University of Newfoundland. PriFor highlights the research, program, and practice activities of the many and varied professionals involved in primary healthcare.

PriFor 2018 will be held on . Again this year, we will be holding PriFor in our new location: the , located on the main Memorial University campus at 55 Irwins Rd, St. John's, NL, Canada.

This year, PriFor is presented in partnership with ACCESS Mental Health. ACCESS-MH is a project examining access to child and youth mental health services in Atlantic Canada. In addition to our regular content relating broadly to primary healthcare, we will also be including a stream of content focused on child and youth mental health services. While the content of the conference will be determined by the work that is submitted, we expect presentations on themes such as:

  • innovations in child and youth mental health services
  • using big data and analytics to improve mental health service delivery
  • inequity
  • system integration and trends/challenges in service delivery
  • supports for families and caregivers
  • lack of evidence and poor measurement practices
  • chronic disease

Now in our tenth consecutive year, PriFor continues to create a forum and a climate for the sharing and networking of ideas and knowledge to help strengthen research and ultimately, the delivery of primary healthcare locally, regionally, and nationally.
