Policy Backgrounders


The next provincial election takes place on June 7, 2018.

Your health and the health of your community are important and should be a vital part of the discussions leading up to voting day.

RNAO has developed a set of policy backgrounders on the key issues registered nurses (RN) nurse practitioners (NP) and nursing students believe are worth talking about and taking action on.

The topics include:

  • Increase access to care by fully utilizing NPs
  • Mind the safety gap – reclaiming the role of the RN
  • Achieving true health system transformation
  • Universal pharmacare & oral health care for adults and seniors living with low income
  • Patient-centered health records
  • Transforming long-term care to keep residents healthy and safe
  • Indigenous health
  • Social determinants of health
  • Protecting the environment to improve health for all
  • Fiscal capacity: Restoring infrastructure and decent jobs
