    OTTAWA, April 24 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quality Worklife - Quality Healthcare
Collaborative (QWQHC) released its report Within Our Grasp: A Healthy
Workplace Action Strategy for Success and Sustainability in Canada's
Healthcare System. The 48 page report offers a route to sustainable healthcare
by facing the healthcare worker crisis head on. The report calls for
innovation and collaboration from all levels of our system. It provides a
workable strategy that nurtures our health human resources and supports them
to thrive, not merely survive. The complete report is available at
    Many Canadians are seeing signs and consequences of a struggling health
system; some are even questioning its sustainability. Canadians are asking -
will I be able to get the care I need when I need it? Research has made a
direct link between the quality of worklife for health service providers and
quality of care. The health of our human resources in healthcare is paramount
to the sustainability and success of healthcare in Canada. "A great deal of
progress has been made in this area, but we can only increase the pace and
effectiveness with better coordination, sharing and integration of our
learning," said Wayne Strelioff, chair of the QWQHC. "All stakeholders in our
health system have the power to choose - the power to act." The solution is
within our grasp.

    The Quality Worklife - Quality Healthcare Collaborative is made up of
10 national health organizations and more than 45 quality of worklife experts.
QWQHC was formed to develop and promote a national framework and strategy on
quality of worklife to improve health system delivery and patient outcomes.
