Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative
The Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative is striving to improve surgical patients' care experience and ensure that by 2014, all patients have the option of receiving their surgery within three months.
During the first two years of the Surgical Initiative, provincial funding has resulted in steadily declining wait times for patients, and momentum is building for long-term system improvement. Surgical capacity is increasing, operating room processes are being streamlined, and health providers are receiving support to improve clinical practices. By the end of 2012-13, the goal is to provide all patients with the opportunity to have their surgery within six months.
