Breakthrough could prevent hip implant replacement
Medical Xpress
Hip implants rely on the normal functioning of bone cells to achieve fixation of the implant with the bone. However, small metal particles released from hip implants, due to friction between the moving surfaces, have been shown to be toxic to the surrounding bone cells. This causes the implant to loosen in the bone and often leads to patients requiring second surgery to replace the failed implant.

Des dépenses en santé non maîtrisées
La Presse
L'augmentation des dépenses en santé est telle qu'elle compromet l'avenir même du système public et l'équilibre budgétaire des provinces. Et moins un gouvernement provincial respecte ses prévisions de dépenses en santé, plus l'atteinte de ses cibles budgétaires devient difficile. Or, l'expérience des dernières années montre que c'est malheureusement le cas.

Feds: Canada can't afford to increase health care for refugees
Toronto Star
The federal government says going back to the old system of covering all health care costs for refugee claimants would be too complex and costly. That argument is part of a government appeal of a Federal Court decision from July that ruled the current medical coverage violates the charter. The government also filed a motion to stay the court's judgment. The 2012 changes to the interim federal health program saw the government dramatically scale back how much medical service it would cover for people waiting for refugee claims to be decided.

91-year-old waits several hours for ambulance
CBC News
It was a frightening weekend for Garry Lynch and his family when his 91-year-old mother, Catherine Lynch, was forced to wait more than three hours for a Montreal ambulance, after having fallen and been stuck in a bathtub for 13 hours. "It was just a terrible situation," Garry Lynch told Mike Finnerty on CBC's Daybreak Montreal. "At that age there should be some compassion, showing some exception to the rules to send somebody quicker."

Guerre de docteurs au ministère de la Santé
Radio-Canada
L'approche centralisatrice de la réforme du ministre Gaétan Barrette « n'est pas la solution », selon Réjean Hébert. L'ancien ministre de la Santé avance que les réformes de structure n'améliorent pas l'accès aux services de santé. Selon lui, replacer l'hôpital comme point d'entrée de tout le système se fait au détriment des services communautaires, qui sont au plus près de la population.

Preparing for changes in public healthcare
Benefits Canada
This spring, the Canada Health Accord — the 2003 agreement between the federal and provincial and territorial governments on healthcare delivery and funding — expired. Although the current federal government has set out a new funding formula for health transfer payments to provinces, funding will be tied to economic growth and population size without adjustments to account for healthcare inflation. And while there is a position on funding, there has been little apparent movement or discussion about the delivery of healthcare going forward, and that has many wondering what this means to Canadians.
