  • Complete our short survey about radiology and be entered in a draw for five Amazon gift cards!

Please take a few minutes to participate in our quick survey; your responses will help us better understand knowledge gaps so that we can work to address myths and ensure that you have all the information you need about diagnostic imaging.  To complete the survey, go to Now

  • Pharmacare Now

    In the wake of the federal election, the coalition of national and provincial organizations led by the canadian labour congress and the Canadian Health Coalition is calling on the new government to immediately implement universal, public pharmacare. The coalition represents health care providers, non-profit organizations, unions, workers, seniors, patients and academics from across the country. Within a minority Parliament, co-operation is more important than ever. The coalition is urging all parties to work together in the interest of the population of Canada to ensure that a comprehensive pharmacare plan gets adopted within this government’s mandate. This essential new program should be based on the Pharmacare Consensus Principles, which have been endorsed by more than 80 organizations and which were reflected in the recommendations of the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare. This program should be public, universal, comprehensive, accessible and portable. Canada needs pharmacare now! To learn more visit: Now
