A survey was e-mailed to 13,851 providers, of which 916 (7%) responded. Respondents diagnosed more arboviruses in the previous year than were recorded in surveillance records, an indication of underreporting...

Rosser and Kasperski build upon and consolidate several earlier reports to put forward a "bottom-up" model for the integration of health services for Ontario that establishes the family physician as the focal point of entry to the healthcare system. The essential features of this model are as follows: 1. Each person in the province should choose a family physician and formalize a partnership with this physician. 2. Each family physician should be in some form of group practice or practice network ranging in size from 7 to 30 physicians...
