RNAO provincial platform release

RNAO President Morgan Hoffarth and CEO Dr. Doris Grinspun released RNAO's provincial election platform on Feb. 24, 2022 .

With a provincial election only four months away, Ontarians will soon be making an important decision about the future of their province. Nurses represent the largest and most trusted group of health professionals in Ontario, and play a central role in the health of individuals and communities.

The platform presents recommendations in five priority areas: environmental determinants of health, social determinants of health, nursing, care delivery, and fiscal capacity.
