POLICY BRIEF: Governments in the Dark on Patient Suffering

Canada waiting list deaths

A new report from SecondStreet.org shows that provincial governments across Canada don’t have any analysis regarding patient suffering on long health care waiting lists.

Each government responded without any data or analysis.
