Clinical ARP Support Survey


As you know, Alberta Health has recently terminated the grant funding for the AMA’s ARP Physician Support Services (ARP PSS) program. This is despite the AMA’s proposal to maintain the program in the best interest of furthering clinical ARP (cARP) uptake by physicians in Alberta and continuing to enhance and improve existing cARPs. Government has cancelled this important support for physicians, while at the same time as stating that their goal is to have more physicians on cARPs.  This survey will be used to inform the AMA and its membership on the future support needs of current and prospective cARP physicians and how the AMA can best meet those needs.
