Know health care/elec­tion

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Opinion -

Edi­tor:

If you want to ed­u­cate your­self about the sta­tus of our health­care sys­tem prior to our up­com­ing elec­tion, I sug­gest you fo­cus on one word – sug­am­madex.

If you ed­u­cate your­self about this one drug you can gain per­spec­tive on how pa­tient-cen­tered­ness, re­spon­si­ble stew­ard­ship, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, col­lab­o­ra­tion, trans­parency, hon­esty, and in­di­vid­ual risks within the health-care sys­tem trans­late to you.

You can start by Googling al­ber­ta­doc­tors.org/lead­er­spart­ners/lead­ers/sec­tions/sec­tion-mem­bers/anes­the­sia and con­tact­ing the anes­the­sia sec­tion of the Al­berta Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion.

Then I sug­gest, in light of the up­com­ing elec­tion, you ask your MLA what they un­der­stand the is­sues are and what their po­si­tions are.
