Last week Dr. Eric Hoskins, the Minister of Health and Long Term Care, made an announcement about the QCIPA legislation and accepted all of the recommendations put forward by the committee tasked with reviewing legislation by the Minister. The changes to the legislation further strengthen the intentions of QCIPA, in that the results of all investigations conducted under QCIPA must be shared with the patient and/or the Substitute Decision Maker and there will be a way of sharing the results of investigations across the healthcare system. UHN has always discussed the results of the investigations it conducts with the patients involved and we have also let patients know what actions have been taken across UHN so we will continue to work as we always have to protect our patients and share information with those most affected or people who can change systems and processes for all patients.
Tomorrow - July 7th, Dr. Hoskins will be meeting with Sharon Rogers, her team and patients who have worked with the Patient Relations team about their care and the Minister will be making an announcement concerning the Excellent Care For All Act. I know, from my discussions with many people in healthcare in Ontario, that Sharon's team is highly regarded for their approach to patient relations, their ability to use the information gathered through this work to effect changes to the system and the fact that they freely share their work and approach with other hospitals and healthcare organizations. The people who have worked with Sharon's team at UHN know that their work helps us make this place better for patients, their families and the staff at UHN.
The Employee Engagement Survey results for UHN are in. The Senior Management Team has had a chance to review the initial results. Directors will receive scorecards by July 9th, managers by July 17th, and all reports will be posted on the intranet in early August. Stay tuned for a UHN News story out later this week that highlights some of the key findings from the 2015 survey.
I would also like to congratulate Drs. Mary Gospodarowicz, Jay Keystone and Daniel Drucker for their appointments to the Order of Canada last week in the Canada Day Honours List from the Governor General. Their citations may be found
here. The Order of Canada was set up to recognize Canadians from coast to coast to coast who have contributed to making this country a better place and Mary, Jay and Daniel have certainly done this and I offer my congratulations on behalf of everyone at UHN.
