  • IntroductionMeasuring the performance of interprofessional primary care is needed to examine whether this model of care is achieving its desired outcomes on patient care and health system effectiveness as well as to guide quality improvement initiatives. The aim of this scoping review is to map the literature on primary care performance measurement indicators to determine the extent to which current indicators capture or could be adapted to capture processes, outputs and outcomes that reflect interprofessional primary care.Methods and analysisThe review will be guided by the six-stage framework by Arksey and O’Malley (2005). MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, grey literature and the reference list of key studies will be searched to identify any study, published in English or French between 2000 and 2022, related to the concepts of performance indicators, frameworks, interprofessional teams and primary care. Two reviewers will independently screen all abstracts and full-text studies for inclusion. Eligible indicators will be classified according to process, output and outcome domains proposed by two validated frameworks. This study started in November 2022 and is expected to be completed by July 2023.Ethics and disseminationThis review does not require ethical approval. The results will be disseminated through a peer-reviewed publication, conference presentations and presentations to stakeholders.
