Hospital Report 2002: Women's Health deals not only with issues of quality and efficiency, but also with issues of equity and inclusiveness themes that are central to our notion of the Canadian health care system.
The quadrants described in this report include Patient Satisfaction, Improving Care and Quality of Worklife, and Clinical indicators. These measures are further classified into three key findings: sex-specific indicators of performance, the comparison of women and men on select performance indicators, and indicators showing support of women for providers of care.
A Technical Supplement describing the methodological approach used to develop this report is available.
