JointHealth™ express   March 25, 2013

In a country as large as Canada, meeting every citizen’s healthcare needs is difficult. People with arthritis have their own set of challenges, such as getting a timely diagnosis and early treatment. The difficulties are greater still, for those living in remote or rural areas.

In this issue of JointHealth™ monthly, Arthritis Consumer Experts explores how to improve arthritis healthcare in Canada from a regional and national perspective. We look at solutions being implemented to overcome some of the challenges of providing healthcare in rural and remote settings. On a broader national level, we look at the work underway to create a harmonized standard of arthritis care that will work all across Canada, while considering the individual needs of each province and territory.
