Wait times improving since accord, but Canada can do much better, says Wait Time Alliance

Ottawa (June 3, 2014) - Medical wait times in Canada have improved since the signing of the 2004 Health Accord, but progress has been uneven, the Wait Time Alliance (WTA) said in its 2014 Report Card today.

In fact, with the Accord now dead, Canada should try emulating Scotland, where medical wait times are effectively a thing of the past, the WTA added in its annual assessment of wait times for treatment and diagnosis across Canada.

Choosing Wisely Canada to Help Physicians and Patients Make Smart Choices

OTTAWA, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - In a first for Canada, nine national medical organizations today released lists of 40 tests, treatments and procedures that patients do not need in all circumstances. The lists have been developed to spur dialogue between doctors and their patients and to ensure delivery of high-quality medical care.

The lists are based on definitive evidence that these specific interventions provide no benefit to patients. They are the foundation of Choosing Wisely Canada, a campaign launched today to help physicians and patients engage in conversations to make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care.

Clear and straightforward materials have been created for both physicians and patients to support decisions on what procedure is required or necessary, and what is not. For example, Choosing Wisely Canada would not recommend the ordering of diagnostic imaging for lower-back pain of less than six weeks duration unless there are red flags.

"Choosing Wisely Canada is about changing the culture that more is always better when it comes to medical tests and procedures," said Dr. Wendy Levinson, founder of Choosing Wisely Canada, and a faculty member at the University of Toronto. "The goal of this is about providing good care with the right patient getting the right test and treatment and avoiding unnecessary tests and procedures."

An easy way to save your practice time and increase patient satisfaction

Your time is valuable, but when patients are anxious they turn to you and your staff for answers. Wouldn't it benefit your practice to free up some of your time by referring them to another trusted source?

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation has devised a program for you where your patients can speak to trained volunteers who are past patients themselves. Our volunteers are trained to be professional, offer your patients relevant information and share their experience, but will not offer medical opinions.

We know you're busy! With this in mind, we have postcards with information about the program for your patients. Simply display them in your office or clinic or include them in your patient packages. To request a supply of these Ortho Connect postcards, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
