Canadian HR Reporter
Canadians are waiting months, on average, for close medically necessary elective surgeries and diagnostic tests, according to a report by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. The 2013 median waiting time of 18.2 weeks is about three days longer than 2012, and substantially longer than 1993 when it was just 9.3 weeks.

Contrôler les coûts des soins est impératif pour la viabilité de notre système de santé
Huffington Post
L'Institut canadien des actuaires (ICA) a récemment brossé un portrait en matière de soins de santé au Canada qui fait dresser les cheveux sur la tête. Les coûts projetés augmentent de façon si soutenue que les provinces auront bien peu d'argent pour s'occuper d'autres besoins, comme les routes, les écoles et les prisons. Bien que le rapport soit étoffé, il cerne peu les vrais enjeux auxquels nous devons nous attaquer.

Toronto Star
Dr. Nav Persaud took the unusual step on Monday evening of emptying a cabinet full of drugs into two garbage bags. The drugs in question were free samples that pharmaceutical reps had given to a family practice clinic at St. Michael's Hospital for distribution to patients. "We decided as a group that it would be better for patients and better for trainees if we stopped distributing pharmaceutical samples," explained Persaud, who led the charge.
