abstract

  • The Canadian Cardiovascular Society conducted a comprehensive survey of 2267 cardiovascular specialist physicians in Canada to profile the type of services provided, physician workloads and expectations of future practice patterns. The survey snapshot of these activities was supplemented with data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information on historical numbers of physicians and key procedure volumes, and the Canadian Medical Association's template for estimates of the future supply of physicians. Together, these data sources highlight the growth in procedure volumes that has exceeded the growth in the supply of cardiovascular specialist physicians.
