Primary Care Health Professionals: Join the i-GAP study!
Recent surveys indicate that the majority of Canadians want to have advance care planning (ACP) discussions with their health care team, but 67% of primary care physicians say they need more resources and information to have those discussions.
The objective of the i-GAP Study is to increase knowledge of and completion of ACPs by individuals by stimulating
greater interaction between individuals, their families and their health care providers in primary care settings.
