OTTAWA, Jan. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) will
mark its 100th anniversary by holding a news conference to propose a series of
innovative solutions and reforms to the Canadian health system.
CNA believes that governments should focus their energy and funding
beyond the supply of health care providers.
In marking 2008 as their Centennial Year, CNA's Vision for Change
statement will outline a new approach to doing more with less, and will
propose creating a very different Canadian health system.
Speaking at the news conference will be:
- Ms. Marlene Smadu, president of the Canadian Nurses Association and
associate dean of nursing at the University of Saskatchewan;
- Ms. Ginette Lemire Rodger, vice president of professional practice and
chief nursing officer at The Ottawa Hospital and member of CNA's
Centennial Leadership Cabinet; and
- Ms. Susan Aglukark, member of CNA's Centennial Leadership Cabinet.
