Richard Chen

Family Physician

I am a full time community Family Physician in Mississauga for the past 35+ years, a graduate of the University of Toronto. I am Active at Trillium Health Centre and do Obstetrics. I practice Comprehensive Primary Care, from cradle to grave, enjoy the full spectrum of Primary Care from neonates to geriatrics, procedures, acute and chronic illnesses, prevention. I'm as excited today, as I was 35 years ago, with the depth and breadth of family medicine, the forward progress and changing landscape of patient care, and mostly, the many relationships, with thousands of patients, making a positive impact on their lives. I've had the special privilege of delivering women who themselves were delivered by me, over 20 years ago. I led one of the major local clinics, that participated early in Covid immunization clinics, administering almost 15,000 shots, and continue to immunize now.   I am a member of the Primary Care Network, and I have a unique perspective as a senior physician in a large Family Medicine Clinic, of the many challenges, including gross underfunding, over regulation, funding of other professionals to disrupt Primary Care, inequities in funding and staffing, and other ground level front line barriers and pain points in our daily work.  I want to advocate for a less fractured, more united, a higher respected view, better funded system that will positively impact the daily work of Family Physicians.

Adithi Naidu

PCN Board Member

When a leadership team reflects the diversity of the community of family physicians, it allows us to drive change. I have been a part of the PCN board for the last four years. In just two short years and through a pandemic, I have seen firsthand what a difference this group can make in primary care. From hosting webinars and well-being events to getting interested physicians into vaccination clinics and high-needs areas, the work of the PCN has proven invaluable to the health of our physician and patient community. As we have seen, the healthcare environment continues to change, and it is increasingly difficult to keep up with both understanding the systemic changes and adapting to them. The MH PCN is a platform for more honest conversations about collaborative approaches to stay informed, empowered, and committed to enhancing physician and patient care.

Greg Van de Mosselaer

Programmer, Hospitalist

I am a family doctor who, for the last 12 years, has looked after elderly patients as my primary focus in South Etobicoke and East Mississauga. These days, in response to the pandemic, I found myself helping out initially in long-term care and retirement home outbreak settings then increasingly in hospitals. As a result, I am transitioning back to my initial career that focused on hospitalist and emergency medical care.  I currently work in the GTA as well as in Belleville.   I am also the lead programmer of the software that runs this website. This site's technology is based on a kernel of code I have developed while working at the University of Manitoba where I was employed as the CTO for CHIMB.ca . Before joining the CHI team, I had already launched this website tech as ManitobaCPD.com and TREKK.ca for the PERC (Pediatric Emergency Research Canada) as part of an NCE grant and NursePractitioner.ca. I am currently the lead programmer TREKK.ca, SGFP.ca and ManitobaCPD.com. I also am the lead programmer for the PERN-Global.com and PERC-Canada.ca and collaborate with an increasing number of medical clients internationally, all in the public sector.   My central conviction is that "Information is a medical device," and I view my work in knowledge translation using IT tools as a natural complement to my medical practice. Furthermore, I intend to help EBM communities-of-practice deliver better care to their patients by facilitating their organization and collaborative activities.
