CONSULTATIONS and SURVEYS - OPEN


The CPSS is responsible to regulate the practice of medicine in Saskatchewan. One of the ways it does that is by developing bylaws, policies, standards and guidelines for Saskatchewan physicians.

From time to time, the Council and the CPSS will seek comment from all stakeholders, including members of the medical profession, the public, health system organizations and other health professionals on various draft documents relating to the regulation of the practice of medicine in Saskatchewan.  The CPSS Council will normally consider feedback at its next regular meeting.  


Members of the public and physicians are invited to provide feedback on the consultations below.

 2022 Exceptions to the Prescription Drug List
Health Canada has launched an initial consultation to gather input from health care providers, industry, and other stakeholders about exceptions to the Prescription Drug List.

Exceptions are intended for when a drug meets one or more of the prescription drug principles and factors, but a health and safety rationale for easier access outweighs the benefits of the prescription requirements.

At this early stage, Health Canada would like to gather initial input about which existing exceptions are still needed and why, as well as any possible impacts that could occur if drugs that are currently considered exceptions were to be added to the Prescription Drug List.

The information gathered from this consultation will:

  • -  Help to confirm which exceptions are still needed
  • -  Inform updated health and safety rationales for existing exceptions

This work aims to ensure that exceptions to the Prescription Drug List meet the needs of patients, caregivers and the modern health care system.

 2022  The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) is excited to share that they are entering the final stages of updating Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines (LRDGs), using the latest evidence. As part of this process, the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) is holding a consultation. The four-week, online consultation is open to everyone in Canada from Aug. 29.

CCSA is seeking comment on the Update of Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines: Final Report for Public Consultation. The report is composed of three documents: the Public Summary, the Technical Summary and the Technical Report.

  • The Public Summary is intended for the general public.
  • The Technical Summary is intended for health organizations, health professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, counsellors) and people who would like to learn about the update of the LRDGs, its key takeaways, the risks associated with alcohol and implications.
  • The Technical Report is intended for alcohol scientists, policy makers and healthcare professionals who are interested in understanding the detailed process followed, the types of evidence reviewed and the way the evidence was used to update the LRDGs.

Each document has a specific audience focus, but participants are welcomed to provide comments on one, two or all three documents.

Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines were originally published by CCSA in November 2011 and were the result of the work of alcohol research experts in Canada. Since then, substantial new research on the association between alcohol use and physical, mental and social harms has been completed. Many countries have updated their guidance on drinking to reflect these advancements in what is known about the risks and benefits associated with alcohol consumption.

We want people in Canada to have the latest evidence-based advice on alcohol to support them in making informed decisions about its use.

Your feedback will help us ensure the readability, clarity and validity of the final updated Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines products. All respectful contributions from people in Canada are encouraged, including those from individuals or on behalf of groups or organizations.

 2022 Help shape the future of virtual care in our province
Message to the public:
Saskatchewan has adopted new ways of connecting patients directly to their doctor or healthcare provider without stepping out the door, through virtual care.  Virtual care uses certain technologies, such as video conferencing and specific apps. Telephone, text, and email are also included under the virtual care umbrella. Millions of medical appointments took place using these methods during the pandemic. The Government of Saskatchewan wants to learn more about how these medical appointments are working for patients. And if you haven’t used virtual care yet, we want to know why not. Make your voice heard and help shape the future of virtual care.
 
Message to Health Care Providers:
Saskatchewan has adopted new ways to safely connect you to patients since early 2020 through virtual care. Virtual care can use certain technologies, such as video conferencing and specific apps. Telephone, text, and email are also included under the virtual care umbrella. Millions of virtual care appointments have been booked during the pandemic.  The Government of Saskatchewan wants to learn more about how virtual care is working for healthcare providers. If you haven’t used virtual care yet, we also want to hear why not.

**UPDATE**

The Ministry of Health launched a platform to solicit public input into the future of virtual care on March 8, 2022. The engagement platform will be open for input until April 30, 2022. The engagement has been going well with 1,640 completed patient surveys, 290 completed provider surveys, 672 quick polls responses, 31 story submissions, and 17 ideas collected to date. We are interested in hearing from as many patients and families, providers, and stakeholders as possible and appreciate your organization’s continued support to increase awareness of the engagement.

If you have already promoted this initiative in your workplace, we would like to thank you. If you have yet had an opportunity to promote the initiative, we would ask that you consider doing so as soon as possible to take advantage of the platform’s availability until the end of the month. Please see the attached Intranet or internal email documents for communication purposes to choose what would work best for your workplace. We have also attached printable posters for any high-traffic areas you may have.

Help shape the future of virtual care in Saskatchewan. Go to https://virtualcare.saskatchewan.ca to learn more and participate. Individuals who may require an alternate method of participation should feel free to contact the project at (306) 787-6750 or at virtualcare@health.gov.sk.ca.
