Clinical Tools and Resources for Primary Care

Evidence-Based Preventive Care Checklist for New Immigrants and Refugees - CCIRH

The Canadian Collaboration for Immigrant and Refugee Health's Evidence-Based Preventive Care Checklist for New Immigrants and Refugees, an eLearning knowledge translation tool designed for primary care practitioners to help integrate the Canadian Immigrant Health Guidelines into practice.

The CCIRH is an interdisciplinary collaboration involving over 150 primary care practitioners, specialists, researchers, immigrant community leaders, and policy makers, that shines an evidence-based lens on the emerging new discipline of migrant health. CCIRH began with an ambitious project aimed at producing evidence based guidelines for primary care practitioners that cover a broad range of infectious diseases; mental health and physical and emotional maltreatment; chronic noncommunicable diseases; and women’s health; conditions identified by practitioners working with new immigrants.
