OTTAWA, May 8, 2008 — Representatives of the Canadian Health Professionals Secretariat (CHPS) gathered in Ottawa recently to assess public policy and labour relations developments over the last six months and to map the course ahead for Canada's health professionals.

Among the issues covered during the May 1-2 meeting was an overriding concern about the significant and growing shortage of health professionals across the country and the need for a long-term national health human resources strategy.

"Canadians expect timely and quality health care services, but those expectations will never be met unless governments address the severe shortages of health professionals," says CHPS co-chair Elisabeth Ballermann.
