The Canadian Medical Association launched a discussion on health care in August 2010. They held town hall meetings across the country and collected feedback from thousands of citizens online. The result is a report released last week called Voices Into Action. In reading the report, it is clear Canadians are passionate about their health care system, and have some interesting insights into possibilities for the future. The report echoed many things discussed in our Progress Report 2011, including the importance of access to timely care, and the need for Federal leadership on issues like pharmacare.
