The article focuses on the support of Canadian doctors to the development of a national patient charter and other related initiatives in Canada. It states that doctors who attended the annual general meeting of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) have voted 97% in favor of the development. Durhane Wong-Reiger, president and chief executive officer of the Institute for Optimizing Health Outcomes, has warned that the patient charter will be worthless without the support of the legislation.
