PCAP currently has an advisory board that is multi-disciplinary and partners closely with the Ontario Lung Association to continually update and develop primary care tools to align with provincial priorities as well as best practice. The Ontario Lung Association houses two professional societies, the Ontario Thoracic Society and the Ontario Respiratory Care Society and their primary care tools for asthma and COPD have been endorsed by these professional societies.
