Mapping the way forward

How are you innovating for your patients?

Physicians across Canada are making changes, big and small, that improve the quality of care for patients, and help ensure that our health care system can meet their needs.

These are the stories of health care transformation’s success — from the oncologist who restructured how his rural Manitoba patients receive cancer treatment, to ease the travel burden, to the Ottawa medical students who launched a program to connect future physicians to refugee families.

The CMA wants to put these examples of successful innovation on the map – literally – with the Innovating for Patients map.

Have you made a change in your daily practice that has connected with your patients or resulted in higher quality care? Has your team implemented a new program to meet community needs?

Share your story, to inspire medical colleagues and inform patients and decision-makers about how physicians are creating the next generation of health care.

The online innovation map:

  • allows users to view innovations by location and theme
  • highlights how physician-led innovations have involved patients as integral participants in change
  • describes how individual changes can be adopted across practice settings and jurisdictions
