Ail sides want more say in liealtli care matters HIGH IN SADDLE High in ihe saddle is ihe way to ride out Cheyenne, Wyo., way, even if il's a bicycle and not a hoss a fellow is riding. And particularly, 11 appears, if the pedals are where the saddle should be. What will they think of next? By GLKNN1S nlLM MONTREAL (CP) Govcrn- :nenlK, consumers and doctors all want more say in how health care will be given in the future, a panel of speakers told the Ca- ladian M c d i c a 1 Association meeting Tuesday. Dr. J. M. LcClair, deputy minister of national health, said a major theme of recenl studies that "co-ordinated govern- ment planning is required so health facilities and serv- ices are organized into effec- tive, efficient and economical systems of comprehensive licallh care available to all." Grace Maclnnes, New Demo- cratic Party member of Parlia- ment .lor Vancouver-Kingsway, said consumer participation in community health care is essen- tial and "prevents such pro- grams from being too much ori- ented either professionally or in- stitutionally." Dr. Gerard Hamel, president of the Federation of General Practitioners of Quebec, said a major problem of current pro- vincial legislation in Ihe heauh field is that it removes responsi- bility tor health care from doc- tors, leaving them "simply em- ployees of institutions." The three were panelisls at a session on deficiencies in the, present health care system. Mrs. Machines, who spoke i "from Hie consumers' gave the -100 doctors in her audi- ence a rough time. UONSUMICUS IJIiLV TOO Doctors mny have made a lot of medical discoveries, but the improvements in health serv- ices "have come largely from the efforts of consumer she said. Voluntary agencies had to begin many of :lie public health and commun- ity health services. Doctors could and should be giving more leadership, she said. And governments too could be more responsible in planning. Dr. LeClair, in an address similar to others he has made in the last two months, said health care costs are rising loo rapidly and must be controlled. This could be done without sf- fecting the quality of care of- fered through new programs such as the extended role of the nurse, use of "hostel" accom- modation rather than hospital beds for patients who don't reed to be admitted, belter use of oi'.l-palient services and vide use of preventive and diagnostic services on an a m b u I a t a r j Dr. Alison McDonald of Moul- ;i professor at McGill Uni- versity, described a study com- laring bctore-and-nftcr of care in relation to medical care insurance. It appears from preliminary studies lhat medical care insur- ance is allowing care to be provided earlier to those who need it and lhat care is reach- ng those in the lower-mcoms brackets, she said. So far, re- sults have not indicated that doctors are working harder under the insurance plan than they did before.
