Doctors, nurses, offer their health care recommendations to Premiers

The Canadian Medical Association and the Canadian Nurses Association released a set of principles for health reform as the premiers prepared for three days’ of meetings in Vancouver this week, which is to include a full-day discussion of health reform. The federal-provincial health-care accord expires in 2014 and the federal, provincial and territorial governments are all looking at ways to improve the system without increasing costs. The doctors and nurses’ report calls for a national reform package for the health-care system focused on patients, quality of care, health promotion and illness prevention – encouraging the premiers to bring the health care issue to a full-fledged first ministers’ meeting by the spring.
