    Dear Minister Jaczek,

    On behalf of the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO), I would like to commend you and your ministry for revising an aggressive timeline on medical reviews for the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). Although we were heartened to read in the media of your ministry's pledge to "get the process right," we remain worried about both the short-term and long-term issues related to the medical review process.
