Primary Health Care System Program
The Primary Health Care System (PHCS) Program is led by Dr. Moira Stewart, PhD, and supported by an Ontario-wide management committee of established primary health care researchers. The PHCS Program provides a limited number of research fellowships and seed funding grants for primary health care research as well as providing opportunities for Ontario-based PHC researchers to share their work - through the annual Trillium Primary Health Care Research Day in June, through research rounds presentations to the MOHLTC and updates on our website or via a mailing list. The PHCS Program also responds to MOHLTC requests on an ad-hoc basis.

- to maintain common research infrastructures
- to make knowledge acquired accessible to caregivers, and policy makers
- to increase bi-directional links with associations, foundations, and the different levels of government and industry
- to conduct timely and targeted research of relevance both to researchers and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
