Comprehensive primary healthcare is designed to be the first point of contact in the healthcare system. It refers to health promotion, prevention of diseases, and support services such as staffing, infrastructure, and management.
A 2015 report by the Canadian Nurse Association stated the main principle of primary healthcare is to provide accessible and equitable healthcare to all. Currently, the costs of hospital-based healthcare are rapidly increasing. This is where the importance of a primary care clinic is crucial than ever before.
