Environics study finds Canadians’ attitudes on health and the health care system are evolving

Mar 28, 2012

Author: ERG

Canadians generally feel that their country has one of the best health care systems in the world—but they believe there is room for improvement. Both these attitudes are consistent with findings from past years. The news from this most recent Environics study is that, increasingly, Canadians feel that addressing the system’s problems is a matter of addressing inefficient management rather than expanding funding.

Canadians stand out from most other societies as being among the most proactive in working with their doctors to reach treatment decisions, as opposed to simply letting the physician make the decision alone.

The full report on this study, which was conducted by Environics Research Group in cooperation with the International Research Institutes (IriS) Network, is available for download here.
