COA
Proposals for Instructional Course Lectures (ICLs) are urgently requested for inclusion in the upcoming 2014 Combined AOA/COA Annual Meeting program. This year we are using a new process where the meeting's ICL topics are proposed by the membership versus the Program Committee. To ensure that all subspecialties are adequately represented in the program, we encourage members to submit their proposals for ICLs through the COA's call for abstracts system by Sept. 30. After this date, the call for submission is closed. Please submit your suggestions as soon as possible by clicking here.

Demande de sujets de conférences d'enseignement pour la Réunion annuelle 2014
L'ACO
Nous avons un besoin urgent de sujets de conférences d'enseignement pour la Réunion annuelle conjointe 2014 de l'AOA et de l'ACO. Cette année, nous employons un nouveau système selon lequel les sujets abordés aux conférences d'enseignement sont proposés par les membres plutôt que par le Comité responsable du programme. Afin d'assurer la juste représentation de toutes les sous-spécialités dans le programme, nous invitons les membres à faire leurs propositions par l'intermédiaire du système de soumission de précis d'ici le 30 septembre. Après cette date, il ne sera plus possible de le faire. Nous vous prions donc de soumettre vos suggestions dès que possible en cliquant ici.

A Parents' Guide to Clubfoot
COA
This booklet is intended for parents of children born with clubfoot to be treated using the Ponseti Method of correction. It features information about clubfoot, the Ponseti Method, the important role of the parents, what to expect from and how to prepare for treatment, and what to plan, prepare, and know that will help both the parents and child throughout the years of the child's treatment.

The idea for this booklet came from two mothers of clubfoot children who felt a strong need for more parent-friendly material about the Ponseti treatment for clubfeet. This prompted them to spearhead an effort to ensure that parents in the future would benefit from their journey. This booklet was written by parents and for parents, with technical advice from the Clubfoot Team at the Royal Columbian Hospital and the Medical & Scientific Review Committee of the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation.

Order your inventory today by calling 1-800-461-3639 ext. 4, or by e-mailing patient-ed@canorth.org.

Guide à l'intention des parents sur le pied bot et son traitement selon la méthode Ponseti
L'ACO
Ce livret est destiné aux parents d'enfants nés avec un pied bot et traités selon la méthode Ponseti. Il comprend divers renseignements sur le pied bot, la méthode Ponseti, le rôle de premier plan des parents dans le traitement, les attentes par rapport à celui-ci et la façon de s'y préparer, de même que ce qu'il faut prévoir et ce qu'il est utile que l'enfant et les parents sachent pour faciliter ses années de traitement.

Deux mères d'un enfant ayant un pied bot sont à l'origine de ce livret; elles estimaient en effet qu'il était vraiment nécessaire d'offrir davantage de documentation à l'intention des parents sur la méthode Ponseti. Elles ont donc veillé à ce que les autres parents puissent bénéficier de leur expérience. Ce livret a été rédigé par des parents à l'intention des parents, avec les conseils techniques de l'équipe de traitement du pied bot au Royal Columbian Hospital et du Comité d'examen scientifique et médical de la Fondation Canadienne d'Orthopédie.

Pour commander des exemplaires du livret, composer le 1-800-461-3639, poste 4, ou écrire à patient-ed@canorth.org.

Canadian health care is far from universal
Ottawa Citizen
Here's a disturbing reality. Health care in Canada isn't as good as you think it is. How much you pay for the drugs you need depends on where you live. You'll wait a lot longer for a knee replacement or cataract surgery if you live in some provinces than in others. The same goes for getting a doctor's appointment.

Pourquoi la politique sociale est une politique de santé
Le Huffington Post
En tant que chercheurs sur l'équité en santé, notre travail nous amène notamment à mesurer les liens entre les facteurs sociaux et l'état de santé. Souvent, nous essayons de relier un facteur social comme le revenu, à un état de santé comme le diabète, l'insuffisance de poids à la naissance ou la maladie mentale — la liste est longue.
