CPSO responses to concern about widespread lethal abuse by Ontario physicians.; 1994.
CPSO complaints officer at first equivocates on the reality of the health complaint. Then her expression of an opinion is disowned by CPSO. In an atmosphere of widespread lethal abuse, the CPSO insisted that we make complaints about specific physicians, creating an adversarial situation that might unfairly reflect on one physician. The CPSO refused (and refuses) to act on the general problem, despite the fact that it contributes to perhaps 2,000 unnecessary deaths in Ontario health care annually, despite 300 years of supportive literature, generations of consumer and clinical experience, despite their obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
