PROGRESS UPDATE
from the Diagnostic and Surgical Recovery Task Force

1) GYNECOLOGICAL SURGERY: The province is developing an agreement with Maples Surgical Centre and other local partners to increase gynecology surgeries. Nearly 3,000 women are currently waiting for care and almost two-thirds of these procedures can be done through day surgery. This program will begin in early February and significantly decrease the wait for many patients.

2) ENDOSCOPY: In Manitoba, the screening tool currently used for colon cancer requires the client to have an endoscopy to confirm their diagnosis. This must be done in an operating room, which requires staffing and other resources. Manitoba is shifting to fecal immunochemical test screening, which provides more accurate results and also reduces the need for endoscopic procedures. This will provide more timely diagnosis and support better outcomes for individual clients. It will also free up operating room space for other procedures by decreasing the number of endoscopies by approximately 10 to 15 per cent per year once fully implemented.

3) ANESTHESIOLOGISTS: The Manitoba government is also preparing a plan to train and hire up to 13 new anesthesia clinical assistants (ACA) positions across the province over the next three years. Anesthesia is fundamental to effective, safe and efficient medical procedures. ACAs allow anesthesiologists to increase their efficiency by being able to delegate and observe care simultaneously for more than one patient. This investment will double the number of ACAs currently working in Manitoba. ACAs are critical members of the surgical team, helping to provide safe and efficient care to patients.

4) SPINAL SURGERY: The province is working on an agreement with Sanford Health in Fargo, North Dakota to provide spinal surgeries as a part of Manitoba’s Out-of-Province Medical Referrals program. This measure will help reduce the wait-list for Manitobans as the province builds its own capacity. Services will be offered later this year as capacity allows at Sanford Health Fargo. Eligible individuals will be referred by their care provider, typically for conditions such as spinal stenosis and chronic degenerative disc disease.

----------------------

“To Manitobans who are on a wait-list for a diagnostic or surgical procedure, I want to say this: more good news is coming,” said Gordon. “The task force project team is focused on achieving results that bring more timely care for all of us. They are guided by local experts who know our health-care system and Manitobans’ priorities. These improvements are just the beginning, as we build capacity and Manitoba-made solutions.”
