Clinical Tools and Resources for Primary Care

Air Quality Health Index - Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change

On June 24, 2015, the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change released the new Air Quality Health Index. The AQHI provides real-time measurements of pollutants and air quality throughout Ontario and offers information to advise patients about ways they can protect their health when air quality levels are associated with low, moderate, high and very high health risks. 

Looking for ways to introduce your patients to using the AQHI?  Check out the peer-reviewed, pre-approved Mainpro-M1 article from Dr. A. Abelsohn and Dr. DM Stieb.

The Clinical Tools and Resources listing links primary care providers with information that may aid in their clinical decision making. In most cases, these resources are created by third parties. The Ontario College of Family Physicians accepts no responsibility for the use or misuse of any of the information provided. Users are required to use their own clinical judgement when dealing with the individual patient.

The OCFP has attempted to provide up-to-date materials for clinician use while recognizing that the rapid evolution of materials may result in the information provided becoming outdated. Users are encouraged to consult the original sources for updated versions as they become available and for further information about the individual resource, its terms of use and limitations. Inclusion in the listing does not indicate endorsement by the OCFP.
