Results of the May 2021 CFPC Members Survey on COVID-19
It is critically important to know how family doctors are caring for patients and communities as front-line health workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) surveyed its 40,000 members in 2020 and 2021. We told their COVID-19 stories at the start of the pandemic in May 2020. The results provided here from May 2021 show how family doctors continue to adapt their practices and the concerns they have for their patients a year later.
