About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [with a nurse practitioner as their primary care provider] who reported that their nurse practitioner has an after-hours arrangement for them to see another doctor or nurse when the office is closed.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have a nurse practitioner as their primary care provider . This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "yes" by the number of respondents who answered "yes, no or I don't know" to the question: Does your family doctor or nurse practitioner have an after-hour arrangement for you to see or talk to another doctor or nurse when his/her office is closed? This does not include referrals to Tele-Care 811.

Notes

The 2020 edition of the Primary Health Survey (PHS) was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, NBHC had to assess the impact of surveying during the pandemic. Accordingly, advanced statistical analyses were performed to allow for comparison between the results obtained in 2020 and those obtained in previous PHS cycles. Despite these analyses, users are advised to use the PHS 2020 data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other PHS editions.
