Annual Report 2017 - Page 4

“We must also be aware of the context in which doctors work and do what we can to support them.” both the public and physicians. We have also continued work on developing policy and other guidance for physicians. In 2017, we did much of the groundwork in developing our Continuity of Care policy that is now out for consultation. To ensure that we developed a draft that struck the right balance, we engaged with the profession, members of the public and stakeholders. We look forward to continued consultation and collaboration to ensure that we have a policy that is relevant, practical and most significantly, minimizes breaks in continuity of care. In closing, I hope you enjoy reading our 2017 Annual Report. We are proud of the work that we do, and pleased with what we accomplished. Thank you, David Rouselle And on the topic of looking forward, I am pleased to welcome Dr. Nancy Whitmore to the College as the new Registrar and CEO. Nancy joined us in June of 2018 and already has a solid grasp of the many complex and nuanced issues facing the College. In the coming year, we will be developing a new strategic direction and I have confidence in Nancy’s ability to lead this organization into a new era of patient protection.
