Canadian Medical Association seeks your input on health care transformation

The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) has launched a new website and is hosting town hall meetings to get input on the future of our health care system.

Representing 74,000 doctors across Canada, the CMA is trying to start a national dialogue prior to the 2014 expiry of the federal-provincial health transfer agreement.

Dr. Jeff Turnbull, CMA President, says they are asking three questions:

1. Should the Canada Health Act be expanded to include pharmacare and long term care?

2. What do citizens consider to be good value in their health care system?

3. What role should patients and their families play now and in the future?

The CMA’s web site is www.healthcaretransformation.ca
