Canadians increasingly frustrated about health care A wave of discontent with the nation’s health care system is sweeping across canada, with the vast majority of canadians revealing they feel like outsiders who are powerless to influence their own health care. Seven out of eight adult canadians want a complaint mechanism or ombudsman built into the system to enforce a charter of patients’ rights, a new poll shows. An ipsos reid survey, commissioned by the canadian medical association and due to be released monday at the organization’s annual general council meeting in st. In 2011, 70 per cent of canadians polled as part of the doctors group’s annual”Report card”On health gave the system an a or a b for overall quality of services provided down from 75 per cent last year. The results show that”The public is becoming increasingly concerned that health care will not be provided to them when they need it,”Out going cma president dr.Jeff turnbull told postmedia news. When asked whether the health care services available to them and their families has improved, stayed the same or worsened since the 2004 federal provincial health accord was signed, nearly half(47 per cent)Say that it has stayed the same, while 36 per cent say it has gotten worse.Only 15 per cent say that it has improved. The accord”Didn’t change health care for a generation,”Turnbull said. “The money bought time it didn’t buy change. “Canadians are not noticing a substantial improvement in the quality of health care they’re receiving, and because of that because of the concern about budgets, because of the concerns about fiscal uncertainty they want some kind of insurance,”Said turnbull, chief of staff at the ottawa hospital. “The public is saying, we want our provincial governments to be accountable to us. ” Between july 5 and july 8, ipsos reid surveyed 1, 026 canadian adults online, and another 1, 000 canadians by phone.With samples this size, the results are considered accurate to within 3.1 percentage points, plus or minus, 95 per cent of the time. According to the results: More than eight in 10 canadians polled support a patient health charter that would become a guarantee of services providing specific timelines for care and quality assurances; 93 per cent agree that the provinces should adopt patient charters;87 per cent support making charters a requirement under any new federal provincial territorial health funding agreement;Half say that regions that don’t establish a patient charter should get less funding, while 48 per cent disagree; 87 per cent support including a complaint mechanism;86 per cent support an ralph lauren outlet australia independent ombudsman who could find care for them in another jurisdiction if needed. The findings reflect deep seeded frustration with the system, said mike colledge, president of ipsos reid public affairs in canada. “Ten, 15 years ago the debate was largely about, do we have enough money in the system?Hospitals were closing people were seeing real cuts,”He said. “The funding over the past 10 years didn’t make the system better it stopped some of the bleeding, some of the cuts, but it hasn’t, in the public’s mind gotten better. ” Wait times remain a huge problem, he said even to see a doctor.Five million canadians don’t have access to a family physician.And, once they enter the system,”People are feeling a bit powerless to control what happens to them next,”Colledge said. Most of those polled http://www.rcamb.com.au/supported publishing the number of complaints by jurisdiction, to compare regions against each other. One third of canadians surveyed said that either they, or a family member, had received such poor care that they would have complained to an ombudsman or requested treatment elsewhere.In most cases, it was a waiting issue. “The vast majority said it just took too long,”Said colledge, of ipsos reid. Turnbull said a patient charter which the cma has argued should be a main pillar of any overhaul of the system would”Outline and clarify what citizens should expect from their health care system. “So, if i have to wait for a total joint replacement for a year, and you(The province)Said it would, as part of the charter, provide access to surgeries such as this in six months, what’s my opportunity for redress?Are you willing to send me to another jurisdiction to get it done in a timely fashion? ” Turnbull said canadians believe a patient charter would shorten wait times and make the system more accountable. Those polled said people living in similar sized cities or towns, regardless of which province they live, should have access to similar health services. When asked to score the federal government’s performance in dealing with health care, 23 per cent gave the government an f, up from 19 per cent last year.Meanwhile, 24 per cent gave their provincial governments an f for dealing with health care, up from 21 per cent in 2010. When asked whether they expect health services in their community will improve or worsen in the next two to three years, 48 per cent said they will worsen, versus 38 per cent who say they will improve. Signed in 2004, the 10 year, $41 billion federal provincial health accord expires in 2014, and significant chunks of the doctor’s meeting in st.John’s this week will be devoted to negotiation of a new deal.
