    The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional association representing registered nurses (RNs) in all settings and roles across Ontario. It is the strong, credible voice leading the nursing profession to influence and promote healthy public policy. RNAO appreciates this opportunity to provide our written submission on Bill 135, Ryan’s Law (Ensuring Asthma Friendly Schools), 2013.

    On December 17, 2013, RNAO sent an Open Letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne and key MPPs from all three parties, including members of the Standing Committee on Social Policy, with two key suggestions on improving student safety by strengthening Bill 135 (enclosed). RNAO reiterates the point made by MPPs from all three parties during debate that Ryan’s Law would be even stronger if it were to include other life-threatening conditions such as diabetes and epilepsy. Our hope is that a more comprehensive approach might prevent having to introduce another law that bears the name of another child’s tragic death—like Ryan’s Law or Sabrina’s Law.

    The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional association representing nurses, in all settings and roles across Ontario. It is the strong credible voice leading the nursing profession to influence and promote healthy public policy.

    As RNAO outlined in Creating Vibrant Communities: RNAO’s Challenge to Ontario’s Political Parties, there is both a strong human rights rationale and compelling public health evidence that demands collective action on the social inequities that drive health inequities. It is completely unacceptable that in a province as affluent as Ontario that there could be a twenty-one year difference in life expectancy in the five kilometer distance between a high-income and a low-income neighbourhood in Hamilton. Just as we now strive to base decisions on how best to improve an individual’s health condition based on evidence and how to improve health-care services based on evidence, it is imperative that the Government of Ontario use clear evidence to reduce the avoidable and unnecessary premature deaths due to poverty and income inequality. This international multi-disciplinary evidence been compiled by the World Health Organization’s Commission on the Social Determinants of Health. There is an international consensus that “governments have a responsibility for the health of their peoples, which can be fulfilled only by the provision of adequate health and social measures.”

    The Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) is gravely concerned by the recent precipitous movement by Health Canada to support the for-profit plasma industry thereby risking the safety and integrity of Canada's blood supply system.

    Three recent ground breaking reports exemplify RNAO’s influential work: Primary Solutions for Primary Care; Enhancing Community Care for Ontarians (ECCO): A Three Year Plan; and RNAO’s Submission to the Government of Ontario’s Senior Care Strategy. The three, are central pillars to improve health system integration and ensure Ontario becomes a high-performing health system that achieves the ‘triple aims’ of improved patient experiences, enhanced population outcomes, and health system cost-effectiveness. The focus of these work is on locating care coordination and system navigation within primary care, with a strong emphasis on health promotion, disease prevention, chronic disease prevention and management, and mental health – resulting in a system that is upstream and more responsive to the public’s needs.
