2 Disclaimer! I am a physician with some knowledge of the complexity of the work of all of the allied professionals, but certainly not an expert. I am happy to be here with you to share some of what is going on in Quebec, but mainly I am eager to understand the views of the ROC! 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 2

17 Montreal Metropolitan Landscape, so called 450-514 Besides the MUHC, the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Montréal is also building a new hospital, and Ste-Justine University Hospital is also expanding as is the Jewish General Hospital; There is a Ministry mandated shift in the offer of services towards the regions and away from downtown Montreal; MUHC and CHUM to focus on tertiary and quaternary care with less emphasis on primary and secondary care. 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 17

19 Bill 90 (physical health) Adopted June 14 th, 2002 Ce projet de loi prevoit un nouveau partage des champs d’exercice professionnels dans le domaine de la santé et les activites desormais reservees aux medecins, aux pharmaciens, aux infirmie ̀ res et infirmiers, aux technologues en radiologie, aux dietetistes, aux orthophonistes et audiologistes, aux physiotherapeutes, aux ergotherapeutes, aux infirmie ̀ res et infirmiers auxiliaires, aux technologistes medicaux et aux inhalotherapeutes. 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 19

21 Bill 90 Took away the necessity for delegation; Gave the right of title and the right of practice; Requirement to belong to a professional Order; In general seen as a positive step, though certainly did nothing to curtail, and in some cases worsened turf wars; Some excellent work: radiology techs and nurses in the cath lab document. 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 21

24 A bit more about imaging: MSSS focus on access In Quebec, colleges offer a 3-year DEC program in Radiological technologies, Radiation therapy, Electrophysiology & Nuclear medicine. The radiological technologies program includes disciplines such as Ultrasound, Mammography, CT, Angiography & MRI. Advanced certification can be obtained for all disciplines through institutions in Quebec, as well as in other provinces and through providers (public and private) like Berwin, BCIT and The Michener Institute. In Quebec, an ultrasound technologist can obtain an attestation of autonomous practice and perform ultrasound examinations without the presence of a specialist., if the criteria are met. Criteria: 5 years experience ( min 26 weeks/yr.) or number of exams (1000 exams in vascular; 1000 exams in cardiac; 2500 exams in abdominal or surface, 2500 exams in obstetrics; 1000 exams in Mammography; 1000 exams en MSK, 50 exams nuchal scan measurements; with a written confirmation from the employer. Ultrasonographers need to maintain their skills with a minimal amount of courses and / or examinations per year. 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 24

25 About the MUHC The work setting The allied professionals report to three different ADGs: ADG clinical operations, adult sites ADG pediatric site ADG medical affairs and DPS (imaging and laboratory services) 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 25

26 What do we need to aim for… Emphasis needs to be focused on enhancing interdisciplinary work with the allied professionals, nursing and physicians: Admission (example psychiatry TCAB initiative) Discharge planning (daily huddles) Organization of care around interventional and cardiac imaging How we get there requires integrated training at the earliest possible moment. 14-05-29 CAAHP Conference Ottawa 26
