Advocacy, statement on administrative burden and more

Updated: April 24, 2024

Family physicians are the foundation of Ontario’s health care system, and Ontario needs family physicians spending time with patients – not on paperwork.  

The Ontario College of Family Physicians has been a strong advocate calling on Ontario to help reduce the administrative burden we are experiencing in our clinics. Today, the Ontario Government announced it will be introducing legislation on requirements for sick notes and piloting AI scribes. While the OCFP welcomes these steps in reducing the administrative burden, we know there is much more to do. We will continue to advocate on your behalf.  Please see below related links and other updates from the OCFP. 

Measles, spring COVID-19 vaccination, Mpox and more
