Canadian Association Of Gastroenterology: Alberta Has The Longest Wait Times In Canada For Patients With Digestive Disease

Wait Times for Patients Who Need Gastroenterology Care Are Getting Longer CAG provides ‘total wait time’

For example: – In New-Brunswick, 3 out of 4 patients wait more than 32 weeks from initial referral to procedure or test; – In Ontario, the total wait time is close to 32 weeks; – In British Columbia, it is almost 28 weeks; – And in Quebec, total wait time is a little under 24 weeks. The CAG also measured total wait times for people showing alarm symptoms which raise the possibility of diseases, such as cancer. The provinces with the longest wait time are: – Ontario, where 3 out of 4 patients with alarm symptoms wait close to 22 weeks from initial referral to procedure or test; – British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec where 3 out of 4 patients wait an average of 16 weeks. “These results don’t come close to meeting the medically acceptable wait time targets set by the CAG”, states Dr. Paterson, President Elect of the CAG. “Canadian GI specialists have determined that patients referred with alarm symptoms should be seen and, if indicated, endoscoped within 2 months.” In Ontario, the total wait time (consultation + procedure) exceeds 8 weeks for 3 out of 4 patients. The CAG is demanding that the 24 recommendations included in the Canadian Consensus on Medically-Acceptable Wait Times for Digestive Health Care, be implemented as wait time targets, and that federal and provincial government work together to provide a patient guarantee for all Canadians, including those with digestive disease. About the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology The Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) was founded in 1962 to promote the study of the digestive tract in health and disease. The CAG is the national body representing Gastroenterology in Canada and has key links with international bodies. Recently, the CAG hosted the World Congress of Gastroenterology (September 2005) in Montreal. The Association is built on broad principles and includes individuals of different disciplines (gastroenterologists, surgeons, paediatricians, radiologists, basic scientists, nurses, nutritionists, health care ethicists). Today, the Association is comprised of over 1,200 members. CAG members are actively involved in research, education and patient care in all areas of digestive health and disease, contributing to the economic and social health of all Canadians.
