By engaging with primary care health teams and their patients, they will create new knowledge about how to optimize ACP in primary care settings that may be generalizable to other primary care practice settings. Given that there are provincial differences in the legal/ethical framework for ACP, we will enhance the likelihood that our findings will be generalizable by working in multiple provinces, and we will be able to specify when the findings are specific to provincial settings.
