About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [with a nurse practitioner as their primary care provider] who reported that their nurse practitioner always helps them coordinate the care from other health care providers and places.

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 "always" by the number of respondents who answered "never, rarely, sometimes, usually or always" to the question: When you need care or treatment, how often does your family doctor or nurse practitioner help you coordinate or connect the care from other healthcare providers and places when you needed it?

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.
