Collaboration with Health Care Providers
- CHAP connects community-based health promotion and prevention activities for adults with the care provided by their family physician and other health care providers.
- For CHAP to be most effective, the majority of family physicians in a community need to be involved by referring or inviting patients to participate in CHAP.
- Other health professionals such as nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and dietitians should also be encouraged to invite or refer patients and/or become involved in CHAP in other ways.
More information and details on CHAP tailored to health care providers is currently under revision in the CHAP Implementation Guide. Updated content coming soon.
