Is Ontario ‘Measuring Up’ to the needs of older adults?

October 18, 2016  · 1 min read

A report issued last week by Health Quality Ontario revealed some very serious gaps facing those in need of health care in Ontario.


Health Quality Ontario (HQO) is the provincial advisor on the quality of health care. HQO reports to the public on the quality of the health care system, evaluates the effectiveness of new health care technologies and services, and supports quality improvement throughout the system.


In ‘Measuring Up,’ crucial gaps in this system were revealed, showing potentially serious problems for vulnerable seniors and those who look after them. The report cited that caregiver distress is on the rise and that a staggering 65 per cent of palliative care patients die in hospitals, instead of at home, which is their first choice.


Dr. Marla Shapiro is an expert in community and public health. She is a member of the Order of Canada and has long been a trusted source for health information.


Dr. Shapiro makes regular appearances as an expert on television and also writes a regular column for the Globe and Mail. Dr. Shapiro is available to speak with media regarding the details of this very important report.
