This is a 5-year community-based program of research in six sites (Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia). Innovative Models Promoting Access-to-Care Transformation (IMPACT) aimed to improve access to primary healthcare for vulnerable populations through the development and implementation of organizational interventions that address the needs of the community.
In Alberta, a Pop-Up model of providing health and community services was implemented seven times over two years. This involved service providers coming together in one location at one time to offer a variety of services. The purpose of the Pop-Up is to make these services easier to access for people who may have trouble accessing them in the usual way or in the usual place they are offered.
The project is undergoing data analysis, interpretation, and report writing through December 2018.
