Welcome to the New QBT Blog

Welcome to the new QBT Blog. I hope to be able to connect with you through this Blog and keep you posted on our activities around the Quality in family practice Book of Tools. The Blog lets you link with me and tell your experiences and questions about using the book. The Blog will help us set up a network of users as a means of sharing our quality experiences.

We will be presenting our Quality Book of Tools at Family Medicine Forum (the annual conference of the College of Family Physicians of Canada) in Montreal, November 3-5, 2011. Join us for a workshop on how to use our Quality Book of Tools on Nov 3rd, and a poster on our new easy-to-use web version of the book on Nov 4th.
This week we are launching our new website with the web version of our book. To access all the new features and to download the book for free you will need to register / login as a member.

What are your thoughts, concerns, suggestions about our new website? Let me know through this Blog.
