Minister Ambrose Announces Investment in Youth Soccer Injury Prevention Programs

The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Health with Victor Montagliani, President, Canada Soccer, Dr. Jiri Dvorak, Chief Medical Officer, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), and Richard Way, CEO, Canadian Sport for Life announced a total investment of $2 million aimed at reducing injuries in Canadian youth soccer players. This investment supports two soccer injury prevention programs: FIFA 11+ and Movement Preparation. The FIFA 11+ program is an injury prevention program that reduces the rates of knee and ankle injuries by up to 46% in soccer. Over the last year, work has been undertaken by Bone and Joint Canada (BJC) in conjunction with the Ontario Soccer Association to implement the program in clubs across the province. This announcement is excellent news as it means a commitment to the implementation of the injury prevention program across Canada and will continue to build on the success of the FIFA 11+ program in Ontario.

National Post

Montreal Gazette
The new emergency room of the MUHC superhospital is a hit with Montrealers who have been packing it since it opened in late April — with the unintended consequence the ERs of other West End hospitals have become much less crowded. Recently, the average daily volume of patients has jumped by at least 20 per cent in the ER at the Glen Site of the McGill University Health Centre, compared with the emergency department at the old Royal Victoria Hospital.

CBC News

The Department of Health issued the directive after the nine health authorities merged into one in April. The policy directive doesn't apply to doctors who have already been approved to use electronic medical records and physicians practicing outside of hospitals.
