À propos de la présentation (en anglais seulement)
The Canadian health care system relies on Emergency Departments (EDs) to provide timely and evidence-based care to acutely ill and injured patients. A situation where patient needs overwhelm the resources available to provide such care is referred to as ED overcrowding. This situation arises through an interaction of system-wide input-throughput-output pressures that manifest themselves principally in the ED. In the Canadian health care system, ED overcrowding occurs frequently in urban, academic and high-volume centres; however, it is also a growing international problem. Fortunately, there is an emerging interest from policy-makers and administrators to address this crisis, and several international efforts have demonstrated rapid improvements (for example, in the UK NHS). The application of evidence, benchmarking using information systems, pay-for-performance models and accountability frameworks appear central to the success of these programs. In this talk, the theoretical concepts behind crowding will be reviewed, some of the evidence upon which system interventions are based will be highlighted and present recent research aimed at evaluating a system-wide intervention will be presented.
