Les partis politiques en campagne électorale au Nouveau-Brunswick ont peu abordé la question du temps d'attente dans le système de santé jusqu'à présent, mais la question est toujours pressante pour les patients qui éprouvent de la douleur. Gracia Maillet, 49 ans, de Moncton, a besoin d'une opération à la hanche. Elle affirme que dans son cas, l'attente peut s'étirer jusqu'à un an et demi.

Improving patient care: Beyond the negotiating table
Weyburn This Week
In Canada, over 80 per cent of registered nurses are unionized. This is the majority of the single largest group of healthcare professionals in the country, who comprise close to one-third of the Canadian healthcare workforce. Whether in hospitals, long- term care, mental health, home care or community settings, registered nurses touch the lives of every Canadian. No other healthcare provider is more integrally involved in direct patient care than a registered nurse.

Le Canada tarde à réagir à la crise des opioïdes d'ordonnance
Le Huffington Post
Au cours de ma première carrière comme pharmacien, j'ai travaillé dans plus de trente pharmacies en Nouvelle Écosse, exécutant plus de 100 000 ordonnances entre 1990 et 1995. Certaines étaient des ordonnances d'analgésiques puissants appelés opioïdes — des substances telles que la morphine et l'oxycodone, qui sont chimiquement et biologiquement très similaires à l'héroïne.

Doctors: Hip surgery costs less than conservative care for fractures
Ortho Spine News
Surgical repair of hip fractures costs more up-front but saves $65,000 in healthcare costs down the line, according to a study backed by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Hip surgeries are likely to become increasingly popular as the U.S. population ages, representing a significant cost burden for the healthcare system, but orthopedic surgeons say the procedure ultimately saves tens of thousands of dollars per patient.

Quebec Premier: Aging population requires new health funding formula
The Globe and Mail
Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard is pushing his fellow premiers to adopt a new funding formula for healthcare transfer payments that would take into account a province's aging population. The rookie federalist premier is making his case behind closed doors at the Council of the Federation meeting in Charlottetown. He is hoping that his colleagues will accept his proposal and then lobby the federal government to change its formula, which many provinces argue punishes them for having an older population.
