CANADIAN MEDICAL FORUM ISSUES CALL TO ACTION ON PPE

During the COVID-19 pandemic, PPE use has become one of the most critical issues for Canada’s healthcare providers.

In response, on March 30, 2020, the Canadian Medical Forum, a group comprised of leaders of Canada’s major national medical organizations (including Resident Doctors of Canada), released a Call to Action calling on provincial, territorial, and federal governments to:

immediately develop guidelines to support best practices in PPE use by healthcare providers and mobilize Canadian PPE production in order to protect healthcare providers and limit the spread of the disease.”

The full Call to Action (in both English and French versions) can be downloaded here:
