About Us

Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics are a new primary health care delivery model in which Nurse Practitioners are the lead providers of primary health care. Through a collaborative practice approach which includes Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses, collaborating family physicians, and other health care professionals, nurse practitioners provide comprehensive, accessible, and coordinated family health care services to populations who do not have access to a primary care provider (i.e. unattached patients). Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics improve the quality of care through enhanced health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management, as well as improve care co-ordination and navigation of the health care system at the local level.
