Bow Valley Primary Care Network

In the Bow Valley Primary Care Network, physicians and other health professionals work as a team to provide access to comprehensive primary care services for Bow Valley residents. The Bow Valley Primary Care Network is a partnership between approximately forty family doctors in the Bow Valley, Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services.

PCN nurses have role in reducing fentanyl overdose risks

This summer, Alberta Health reported that in the first six months of this year, 153 people in Alberta died from apparent drug overdoses related to fentanyl, up from 139 fentanyl-related deaths during the first six months of 2015* and six deaths in 2011**. The increase reflects a pattern that has been seen across Canada.   In the Bow Valley deaths have been reported in ER departments in both Banff and Canmore.  In the Calgary Zone (of which the Bow Valley is part from a reporting point of view) ER visits and calls to Health Link have steadily increased.
