Nov. 2, 20022 (Ottawa) — HealthCareCAN, the national voice of healthcare and health research institutions in Canada, commends the federal government for bringing together the key players in our nation’s healthcare system in a new coalition focused on action to address Canada’s health workforce crisis.
Canada’s dedicated but over-burdened health workforce needs urgent support so that it can provide timely access to high-quality care to those who need it. In far too many places across the country that is not happening.
Solving the health workforce crisis is a top priority for HealthCareCAN’s member healthcare and health research institutes who are at the centre of healthcare delivery across Canada. HealthCareCAN is pleased that our calls for a pan-Canadian approach that unites key health system partners to tackle this challenge, with a focus on health workforce planning and innovating the delivery of care, were heard.
HealthCareCAN is committed to continuing to advance tangible and timely solutions to solve the health workforce crisis and to work with patients, providers, political leaders and others to ensure Canada’s healthcare system is there for those who need it.
Paul-Émile Cloutier, President & CEO
HealthCareCAN is the national voice of healthcare organizations and hospitals across Canada. We foster informed and continuous, results-oriented discovery and innovation across the continuum of healthcare.
