Connecting with Canadians


The Taming of the Queue IV


Political promises and rhetoric aside, the struggle to cut wait times for medical procedures is underway in every province and territory across the country.  Successes are many, but there is still a lot of work to be done to bring timely care to all Canadians.  Each spring The Taming of the Queue conference is convened in Ottawa to exchange information on how different jurisdictions are doing in their efforts to cut wait times and to exchange best practices.  This year's conference, held April 4-5, was entitled New Frontiers of Wait Time Measurement, Monitoring and Management.  It drew health care professionals, government representatives, health economists and health policy analysts from across Canada and from around the world.  In the coming weeks, CPRN will release the report from this year's conference.  Following are the presentations, delivered at The Taming of the Queue IV conference, in alphabetical order.
