    Considering the difficulties experienced by individuals with chronic conditions in accessing health care prior to the pandemic, and their potential risk for adverse COVID-19 outcomes, it is necessary to understand how their access to health care was affected by the pandemic, relative to others. This study used data from the Survey on Access to Health Care and Pharmaceuticals During the Pandemic to estimate the proportion of individuals in Canada, with and without chronic conditions, who experienced difficulties accessing health care services during the pandemic.

    Description:

    Healthcare is a privilege that Canadians value greatly. However, virtual healthcare was a rarity before COVID-19. Immediately after the pandemic hit in March 2020, Canadians were forced to rethink how they access healthcare. Appointments that would usually have happened in an office were suddenly taking place by phone or video chat. Now, two years later, most health care is conducted virtually. The question is whether the access to virtual healthcare will disappear when the pandemic ends. Our guest, Dr. Gigi Osler, Co-Chair of the Virtual Care Task Force for the Canadian Medical Association, joins us to explore the barriers to virtual healthcare, the changes we saw during the pandemic, and what’s being done to make virtual care permanent.

    Description:

    The 2001 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS) is a post-censal survey of adults and children whose everyday activities are limited because of a condition or health problem. A sample of those persons who answered 'Yes' to the 2001 Census disability filter questions were included in the PALS survey population. Approximately 35, 000 adults (aged 15 and over) and 8,000 children (aged 0 to 14) living in private or collective households in the 10 provinces were selected to participate in the survey. Persons living in institutions, on Indian reserves, and in the Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut were excluded from the survey. The data were collected after the 2001 Census, in the fall of 2001.

    These tables contain data on the educational attainment, labour force activity and income of adults with and without disabilities.
