CFP Article Series
In 2017, the Task Force launched an article series, Prevention in Practice, within Canadian Family Physician. The series is intended to equip primary care practitioners with concrete advice on how to implement preventive health evidence into their work and engage in shared, informed decision making.
The article series covers topics such as shared decision making, communicating the balance between benefits and harms, eliciting patient values and preferences, and knowledge translation tools.
