|CHAMPLAIN PRIMARY CARE CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
PREVENTION & MANAGEMENT COLLABORATIVE
The primary care community is a key partner for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease (CVD). As a primary care physician you are an important member of a dynamic community dedicated to improving CVD prevention in the Champlain District.
The Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network (CCPN)The Champlain Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Prevention Strategy is a five-year strategy designed to eliminate disparities in CVD health and make the residents of the Champlain District the most heart healthy and stroke-free in Canada. The CCPN was formed in November 2005 to provide leadership to the implementation of the Champlain CVD Prevention Strategy. The CCPN represents partners from public health, specialty (cardiac and stroke) care, primary care, hospitals, community health, and academia who are committed to the vision and mission of the CCPN. IDOCC is one of six priority initiatives of the Champlain CVD Prevention Network (CCPN).

Improved Delivery of Cardiovascular Care (IDOCC) through Outreach FacilitationIDOCC is an innovative, community-based program designed to create a local network of primary care physicians dedicated to delivering up-to-date evidence-based care for prevention and management of heart disease, stroke and diabetes and its associated risk factors (hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, diabetes, renal impairment, smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity). The IDOCC program uses an Outreach Facilitation Model (OFM), in which skilled health professionals known as facilitators serve as an expert resource to primary care practices. The IDOCC facilitators bring expertise in CVD prevention guidelines, primary care office systems and the links to relevant community and educational resources. LEARN MORE
Champlain Primary Care CVD Prevention and Management GuidelineThe Champlain Primary Care CVD Prevention and Management Guideline is a desktop resource for primary care doctors in the Champlain District.

The guideline also includes practical information on counselling and prescribing as well as a summary of local specialty and community resources. LEARN MORE
A series of tool kits have been developed to support the implementation of evidence-based guidelines into busy primary care practice settings. The tool kits serve to assist with better organizing primary and secondary prevention activities into your daily practice routines and support patient self-management. These tool kits can be adapted to the needs of your own practice environment. LEARN MORE
January 24-26th 2011, IDOCC hosted the Art & Science of Outreach Facilitation, a 3 day workshop designed to familiarize attendees with the theory of facilitation and its applications in primary care, as well as an introduction to chronic disease self-management principles. The workshop was attended by over 70 participants from across Ontario. Presenters included Dr. Jeremy Grimshaw (University of Ottawa), Dr. Lyndee Knox (LA Net, University of Southern California), Dr. Bill Hogg (University of Ottawa), and Dr. Clare Liddy (University of Ottawa), as well as IDOCC’s own Outreach Facilitators who shared their hands-on experience gained from working with practices across the Champlain region over the past several years.
