What is a family health team?

Family Health Teams are health care organizations that include a team of family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, and other professionals who work together to provide health care for their community. Family Health Teams provide more service and a wide range of health options, especially for people who don't have a doctor. Family Health Teams ensure that people receive the care they need in their communities, as each team is set-up based on local health and community needs. They focus on chronic disease management, disease prevention and health promotion, and work with other health care organizations, such as public health units and Community Care Access Centres. Since April 2005, 170 teams have been created across the province. It is expected that the 170 teams will improve access to health care for more than 2.7 million Ontarians. In August 2010 the government announced 30 more teams bringing the total number of Family Health Teams in Ontario to 200.

Who is on the team?

In addition to family doctors, the team also includes Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, a Dietitian, a Social Worker, a Respiratory Therapist, a Chiropodist, as well as other health care providers. Some of these positions are referred to as "Allied Health Professionals" which are people who have expertise in specific ares. You can view a list of these health care providers here.

How does the team approach work?

The team works together with you, to offer health education and promotion, illness prevention, disease diagnosis as well as management and rehabilitation.

Will I still have my family doctor?

Yes. Each patient will still continue to see their family doctor during regular office hours.
