The Covid-19 pandemic affected all physicians in the province, from surgeons to emergency rooms to primary care clinics trying to balance in-person and virtual care visits. Physicians stepped up to fulfill leadership roles amongst many other efforts to provide quality care. What Covid has highlighted again, is the concern with Primary Care and Family Physicians in our province. This opinion piece is not to exclude other specialties and the roles they play in the delivery of healthcare in the province, but to recognize that the family physicians remain the cornerstone of medical care delivery, and that they are struggling to maintain the desired quality of care with the additional burdens they face.
Dr. Carmel Overli-Domes replaces Dr. Heather Halldorson, who left her position with the Quality of Care team at the end of April 2022. On behalf of the CPSS, we would like to welcome Dr. Overli-Domes and thank Dr. Halldorson for her years of service as Senior Medical Advisor and wish her well in her future endeavours.
WHO IS DR. OVERLI-DOMES?
It's always better to be safe than sorry! AND we'd be happy to help you out!
Please phone or write the CPSS with your questions!
