What are the plan priorities?

Some of the considerations for this proposal include the following:
  • A whole province plan so that one region is not favored over others
  • Care at levels of the system as it is needed i.e. Emergency Departments, Family Practice office, specialist levels, mental health teams and in hospital 
  • Education of all doctors and related professionals working with doctors such as nurse practitioners
  • Cost effectiveness: each part of this system should be able to demonstrate cost effectiveness
  • Collaborations welcome: much of the loss to the province is through disability costs paid by insurers and corporations: creative ways to provide services will be considered where possible 
  • Full evaluation of the new system
  • Pilot studies of novel cost effective interventions to advance knowledge and care here and elsewhere
