health care issues on CBC radio today

September 3, 2012

Health care challenges on The Current, including an interview on drug shortages, which we sure experience in the North with delays in ordering and filling orders in a system which can be unwieldy – but more and more, national and international shortages of medicines are affecting people in need of health care, and the health caregivers who are trying to help. It’s becoming more common to have to wait for a simple antibiotic for a highly treatable infection – not just ’til it is restocked in a few days, but until a supply is manufactured.

Also, segments on dementia in the workplace and an interview with Canadian Medical Association president, Doctor Anna Reid, who is experienced in Northern and remote health care, “comes to the post at a time when doctors and health policy makers are trying to figure out how to do more with less and she has serious concerns about the direction her profession is taking.”
