South Island/Victoria Partners in Care Project Evaluation


Initiated in December 2011, the Partners in Care (PiC) project was a collaborative partnership between the South Island and Victoria Divisions of Family Practice funded by the Shared Care Committee.


The project aimed to provide physicians with a supportive environment to come together to improve working relationships and communication processes. The core objectives were to:

• Create an environment that encourages and supports the rebuilding of relationships between Family Physicians (FPs) and Specialist Physicians (SPs).

• Facilitate opportunities for FPs and SPs to collaborate on developing practical and sustainable solutions to improve patient care, as well as enhancing their own professional satisfaction.


This report includes evaluation findings from the third and final phase of the project, along with perspectives from phases I and II evaluation efforts.
