Would you like extra funds for orthopaedic projects and research? Take advantage of the revenue sharing provided by the Hip Hip Hooray! Pedometer Challenge

With this revenue sharing model, a number of surgeons and orthopaedic departments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by participation in Hip Hip Hooray! Revenue sharing provides the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation with the opportunity to invest close to 40% of funds raised directly into the very communities who support the event. What's most appealing is that health-care professionals decide how to spend those funds by choosing one or more of the following activities:

1. Research project specific to orthopaedic surgery
2. Orthopaedic patient education programs and materials (such as pre-surgery seminars and videos)

The Foundation is thrilled that a number of hospital foundations have embraced this event as it represents a third party fundraiser that provides for additional funding not otherwise accessed.

To learn more about how your orthopaedic department and/or clinic can benefit, contact the Foundation at 1-800-461-3639 ext. 222 or at

Aimeriez-vous obtenir du financement supplémentaire pour vos projets et recherches en orthopédie? Profitez du modèle de partage de recettes proposé grâce au défi du podomètre Hip Hip Hourra!

Depuis l'introduction de ce modèle de partage des recettes, divers orthopédistes et leur service d'orthopédie se sont prévalus des avantages de la participation à la campagne Hip Hip Hourra!

Le partage des recettes permet à la Fondation Canadienne d'Orthopédie d'investir près de 40 % des fonds recueillis directement dans les collectivités qui ont soutenu la campagne. Le plus attrayant pour vous, en tant que professionnel de la santé, c'est que vous pouvez décider de la façon dont ces fonds sont employés en choisissant au moins une des activités suivantes :

1. Projet de recherche en chirurgie orthopédique
2. Programmes et matériel de sensibilisation des patients en orthopédie (comme des séminaires et des vidéos préopératoires)

La Fondation est très heureuse que cette manifestation ait été adoptée par diverses fondations d'établissements hospitaliers, puisque ces tierces parties recueillent ainsi un financement supplémentaire qui ne serait pas accessible autrement.

Pour savoir de quelle façon votre service ou clinique d'orthopédie pourrait aussi bénéficier de tels fonds, communiquez avec la Fondation, au 1-800-461-3639, poste 222, ou à

The fiscal sustainability report looks at whether spending policies of the various levels of government will be viable 75 years into the future, given current economic and demographic predictions.

'Zombie report' on health-care innovation in Canada gets new life
The Globe and Mail
David Naylor, head of an expert panel for the federal government that saw its months of work on health-care innovation quietly buried by way of a recent release, is not ready to concede its death just yet. Absent any plans by Ottawa to talk up the $700,000 report's findings, Dr. Naylor did the job himself recently, telling a Toronto audience action is needed to break the political "gridlock" around health-care reform and warning that without it, the system will continue to lose ground.
