VIDEO: Why doctors care about Pharmacare

TORONTO – Doctors are adding their voices to the growing call for a national Pharmacare program with the release of Canadian Doctors for Medicare’s new video, “Why doctors care about Pharmacare.”

“We know that medications are an essential, sometimes lifesaving, part of the treatment that Canadians need when they’re coping with an illness,” said Dr. Monika Dutt, chair of Canadian Doctors for Medicare. “But we also know that many of the patients we see every day can’t afford the treatment they need to stay healthy, and to avoid coming back to our offices and emergency rooms.”

The video features doctors telling the real stories of the challenges they face with their patients when affordable medications are out of reach. You can also click on a doctor at the end of the video to hear more about his or her personal experiences.
