1 Bulletin de l Association des médecins omnipraticiens de Montréal (Affiliée à la Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec) October 2013 Volume 36 N 3 Dépôt à la Bibliothèque nationale du Canada et du Québec, 2e trimestre 1985 ISSN It s Time to Say au revoir! ditorial O Photo : Le Médecin du Québec EÉ Dr. Marc-André Asselin n June 20, 2013 I informed the Board of my intention to resign from my position as president of the Association des médecins omnipraticiens de Montréal. My resignation will come into effect at the next Board meeting on November 14, At the same time, I will be leaving my position as 1st Vice-President of the Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec effective December 14, 2013, at the FMOQ Annual meeting. The reasons behind my decision are quite simple. First, I would like to allow a new, younger team to take over at both the Association and the Federation, in order to prepare for the next round of negotiations in 2015, which are shaping up to be rather difficult. As well, I would like to take some time for myself and my family, after over 30 years as a delegate to the Federation Council as your representative. «waged by private offices to survive in the face of the desire of the Regroupement des CLSC of Montréal at the time to become the entry point for the network. We should also remember that the political decisions that constantly favoured the other regions of Quebec led to the difficulties that family doctors in Montréal have been experiencing for close to twenty years. Our remuneration during this period fell behind that of our colleagues in the other specialties and an unacceptable shortage of physicians left 1.5 million citizens without a family doctor. This fall, I am closing the door on a major part of my life, and I am doing so in complete serenity. My years of union involvement were filled with intense activity and I do not regret even one second. I had the chance to work with you over a period when the network was undergoing profound change. Remember the closures of acute care institutions at the end of the 1990s, the retirements offered to hundreds of family doctors in the same period and the constant battle Over all these years, I served in numerous positions. I began my union duties as a sector delegate in Rosemont in the early 1980s and continued in that position until 1988 when I was elected Secretary of AMOM. I remember the only strike of family doctors in Québec in the spring of In December 1995, I took over as president of our Association and a few weeks later, I became first administrator at the FMOQ. In 1996, I became president of the Montréal Regional Medical Commission and a member of the Board of Directors of the Agence, which was then called the Regional Board.» Within the Federation, I held different positions including General Secretary, second Vice-President, and (cont d on page 3)

3 News on the Presidency of AMOM As you have read in his editorial, Dr. Marc-André Asselin has informed us that he will be resigning from his position as president of our association after 18 years of dedicated service at the head of AMOM. Given that this is the first time in the history of AMOM that a president has resigned in the middle of his mandate, the Board sought an opinion from the FMOQ Legal Department to find out how to proceed in such a situation. The Board has decided to follow the Bylaws of the Association which specify that in the case of a vacancy on the Board, the latter will nominate a replacement at the meeting following the announcement of the vacancy; that replacement will remain in the position until the next elections. Our next elections are scheduled to take place in November At its next meeting on November 14, 2013, the Board will therefore appoint a new president for a one- year mandate. Dr. Marie-Pierre Laflamme We will most certainly take the opportunity to pay tribute to Dr. Asselin in our next newsletter and to salute his deep commitment, which he has demonstrated over all these years at both AMOM and the FMOQ. Please refer to the article about our annual general meeting. Dr. Marie-Pierre Laflamme AMOM Secretary Photo : Le Médecin du Québec Editorial (cont d from page 1) then in 2008, I became first Vice-President. I served under two presidents at the FMOQ: Dr. Renald Dutil and Dr. Louis Godin. So many memories over all those years! The most striking memories are those related to meeting with all of these physicians, both in Montréal and throughout the regions of Quebec. I also had the chance to get to know the representatives of all the medical associations. During the last ten years, I worked with representatives of the government and I was in a position to speak regularly with the different ministers of Health as well as with several deputy ministers. At the negotiating table, I participated actively in all the dossiers that filled the day-to-day concerns of family physicians during this decade. I also chaired numerous committees at both the Association and the Federation. Without doubt, I am proudest of the work that was done by the committee on the enhancement of family medicine in within the limits of my roles. Family medicine has made progress and has developed, while expanding its field of action. Remuneration has improved substantially and, even though we have not been able to match that of our colleagues in the other specialties, it is not for lack of trying. I am convinced that it s just a matter of time. In recent years, we have revised the descriptions of services (nomenclatures) in all the practice settings. The only one left is that of working in clinic and the team is already working on this. The 1976 Agreement will almost be a thing of the past! We will have made a clean slate. I intend to return to my practice, working at a reasonable pace, for some time to come. This fall, I am closing the door on a major part of my life, and I am doing so in complete serenity. I would like to thank you for the confidence that you have given me throughout all these years and I will close with a simple au revoir! I am leaving my duties happy and serene, with the feeling that I have accomplished my mission, Dr. Marc-André Asselin, President 3 October 2013 Newsletter from the Montreal Association of General Practitioners

4 Committee on Accessibility Just as the focus two years ago was on enhancement of family medicine with the goal that every citizen in Quebec would have a family doctor, today we are talking more about accessibility to one s family doctor. We do actually have to ask ourselves the question: Having a family doctor is one thing, but what good does it do if you can t see him/her when you need to? Three committees have been established in the last year to deal with this hot topic: the first is at the FMOQ; the second, at the Montreal Health Agency, bringing together representatives from AMOM and the DRMG and the third committee, at AMOM, will enable us to take the measure of the realities in our own region. Our mandate consisted mainly in analyzing the level of accessibility of the public to their family doctors and to make recommendations to improve this access. The members of the AMOM Committee were Dr. Jean-Pierre Villeneuve, Dr. Marc Dancose, Dr. Daniel Laliberté and myself. Our report will be presented to the Board for adoption on September 19, 2013 (which had not yet been done when these lines were written). At our first meeting, the committee had planned to develop a survey to be sent to all family physicians in Montreal. However, after reviewing numerous documents, including the survey conducted by the Minister of Health, carried out between March and May 2012, requested by Dr. Yves Bolduc, we decided on a different course of action. In fact, the results of the survey, which was answered by 37,284 people, contained a great deal of interesting information. do not have a family doctor, it turns out that in Montreal, this figure is 34%! In addition, this percentage varies greatly depending on the 12 local service networks (RLS) in our metropolis where we see that the RLSs with the largest populations are those with the fewest medical clinics. Dr. Michel Vachon The Federation should be presenting its report in October. We are expecting this report to contain several different proposals. Our findings concerning the analysis of the issue of accessibility, whether from the point of view of the patients, the physicians or of the organization of services in the territories, are all related, just as the solutions envisioned. We must create a safety net for patients (along the lines of the network clinics) deployed across the province. In addition, incentives will have to be introduced both for support to practice and for remuneration so that physicians increase their accessibility. The top challenge in the next negotiations will most likely be around the issue of accessibility. This is a dossier that we will continue to follow.

5 Some Thoughts As this will be among my last official contacts with you, I will allow myself to share some thoughts on the Québec health care system of which we, as family physicians, should be the pillars. For over 30 years now, I have been in close contact on a daily basis with the planners and decision makers of the health system. If it is true, and I am convinced that it is, that the value of a health system cannot be greater than the quality of its first line, how can we explain this delay in the implementation of functional, articulated and suitable structures so that the taxpayers get their money s worth from it? To put it succinctly, the lack of vision and planning, as well as a lack of courage are directly responsible for this bottomless financial pit and the justified dissatisfaction of the public. A society where pressure groups take precedence over logic and the common good will never succeed in solving its problems and this in spite of proof of intervening. There are numerous examples where under the cover of justice and of a certain corporatism, every interest group had succeeded in pulling strings to improve their own power or their own well being. I believe that as long as the system is run by politicians, we will have to wait for genuine solutions. There are many problems and I will not be able to list them all, in the space available here, but let s mention some of them, just for the fun of it. numerous little kingdoms that are jealously guarded by the managers. The networking without direction that has been left to evolve haphazardly has also played a role. The lack of coherence between the responsibilities of the FMGs and the Network Clinics (CRs) in a system where over a million citizens do not have access to the services of a family doctor has only increased the confusion. The government s insistence on a FMG model that is poorly adapted to the existing organization in our milieu has only resulted in creating dissatisfaction without increasing services. The chronic shortage of family doctors, which has been predictable since the 1990s, cannot easily be swept under the carpet. The obvious favoritism of the different governments for specialists and institutions has allowed for the development of second line care to the specific detriment of first line care. Not only have family doctors been financially penalized, but they have also had hospital duties imposed on them (AMPs), which is unique in the western world. This also has a direct, negative impact on patient care and follow up. Worse, we have opted for trendy ideas, supposedly to prepare for these shortages by granting midwives, for example, rights that have only ended up postponing the real solutions, and at what cost. We have just done the same thing with the nurses and pharmacists by creating other silos that will change nothing, but will increase dissatisfaction among one or another group, just like the bill. 5 The hospital-centric thinking where our The organization of the work of family doctors has leaders dwell, fed by the world of the specialties, not helped to facilitate access for the public that was has certainly been the foundation of the entire only asking to support them. The numerous walls that system and is responsible for the pittance that has have been built around them to protect them from been invested in the first line network. We have overloads via the telephone service, the secretary and been talking about this since the earliest days of the appointment system are also part of this failure. the plan, without ever really facing up to it. The We could also look at the modes of remuneration of marked preference of the decision makers for both the specialists and the family doctors that were structure over service to patients is another factor created in a so-called effort to increase quality, that has eroded the public finances by creating perhaps to the detriment of productivity.

6 Annual General Meeting Come and Pay Tribute to Outgoing President Dr. Marc-André Asselin It is my distinct pleasure to invite you to the AMOM annual general meeting that will take place again this year at the Hyatt Regency (Complexe Desjardins) on November 22, As is our tradition, we will be offering a half-day training session starting at 12:30 p.m., followed by a cocktail just prior to the actual annual meeting that will start at 5 p.m. We will hear several different reports, as is the case every year, and then the president of the FMOQ, Dr. Louis Godin, will address the members and will answer questions. However, this year there will be a departure from the standard proceedings. The president of our association, Dr. Marc-André Asselin, has informed us that he will not be continuing in his position. It goes without saying that the Board will have some surprises planned! This will be the opportunity for the general practitioners of Montreal to acknowledge and highlight Dr. Asselin s commitment to family medicine, to the members of AMOM, to our patients and the organization of care. We hope that you will plan to stay on to enjoy a dinner offered by the association to our members and their spouses. Take advantage of this occasion to participate in the festivities organized in honour of an outstanding representative of our professional union. Please register with Mrs. Danielle Villemaire or ). Dr. Marie-Pierre Laflamme AMOM Secretary Some Thoughts (cont d from page 5) I could go on. We have started to look at these issues more seriously in the past few years, but always with the same vision. The future will tell us if we are moving in the right direction. I fear, however, that the power of the pressure groups and the politicians management focused on the desire to be re-elected will not stand in the way for long of the rights of the citizens who are already paying dearly for a service, which too often, is not available. I am convinced that it is possible to do things differently and better. Several countries have succeeded. Are we so different? Going forward I will be watching how things develop from the outside. I am returning to my patients and to my family. I wish for us in the coming years to have a little more wisdom and social transparency. Dr. Marc- André Asselin, President 6 Newsletter from the Montreal Association of General Practitioners October 2013

7 News from the Young Physicians Committee Following the survey that we conducted last May, which was answered by 70 young physicians with less than 10 years in practice, the committee was able to identify several elements that we hope will lead to a greater sense of belonging to AMOM among this cohort. Our survey revealed that 78% of young physicians with less than 10 years in practice are women; 50% of them are 31 to 35 years old. They frequently use social networking and 63% of them clearly prefer Facebook as compared to 11% for Twitter. Yet, they do not necessarily wish to see their union life introduced on Facebook (less than 12% of respondents say they are interested in following AMOM on any of the social networks). In spite of this, the excellent penetration of Facebook among this group makes it a tool of choice for promoting AMOM, its programs and its link to the population. It is significant that there are more anglophones than francophones who would like to focus their practice on first line care. In fact, 69% of anglophones practice mainly in offices, CLSCs, FMGs, or FMUs as compared to 52% among francophones. Perhaps the anglophone FMUs have a well-kept secret for promoting this type of practice. This remains to be seen! The lack of knowledge about AMOM is a reality. In fact, 8 out of 70 respondents or 11% do not know if they are members of AMOM or not. As well, the majority of non-members (25 non member respondents out of 30) would probably agree to join our association. This is a sign that there is still work to be done in this respect. There are a larger proportion of Anglophones (25%) who are not aware of their membership status. Young physicians know about AMOM mainly through word of mouth from their colleagues (50%) or from our recruitment letter (30%) that is sent to those who have a mailing address or another way to reach them when they are about to enter into practice. They have almost never heard any talk of the union association during their residency (10%) and there are very few heads of departments who have discussed AMOM with them (10%). It would therefore be clearly desirable to reach residents to bring these future physicians into union life, all the more so because there are many new graduates who run into trouble with the agreement, PREMs, AMPs and other complexities of our system! Dr. Isabelle Paradis To raise interest in AMOM among young physicians, a large majority of the respondents are asking for support as they begin their practice, whether it is with billing (70%), dissemination of information about the agreement (57%) or the process of PREMs and AMPs (48% among francophones; 62.5% among anglophones). Continuing medical education and accompaniment in cases of RAMQ/CMQ inquiries are also part of the expectations that 45% of respondents have of AMOM. A program to welcome new physicians would also be useful. Conferences seem to score high on the list of many respondents; over 60% of respondents would participate in them, falling well ahead of the happy hour concept (24%) and other programs. Taking these observations into account, the committee intends to make recommendations to the AMOM Board. Among others it will recommend the incorporation of the union concept during residency and integration of conferences on topics of particular interest for young physicians just starting out in practice including billing, AMPs, PREMs. It would be advisable to establish a standing committee on young physicians whose mandate would be to ensure that these recommendations are implemented. The committee extends sincere thanks to the respondents to our survey who took the time to complete it and send it back to us.

8 News on Continuing Medical Education 8 In 2012 the Board of the FMOQ adopted a requirement for the local education chairpersons to participate in a six-hour training course in order to obtain or retain their accreditation as local training chairs and then be authorized to submit requests for credits. To satisfy this requirement, over the last few months, AMOM has organized 3 six-hour sessions that were attended by the majority of our 80 local training chairs. We will take this opportunity to highlight the excellent work and availability of the FMOQ s Professional Training Department (DFP) who gave these sessions: the Director, Dr. Claude Guimond, as well as his assistants Dr. Martin Labelle and Dr. Daniel Paquette. We would also like to thank our fellow AMOM members who have agreed to serve as local training chairs. We will be organizing another training session on November 12, 2013 for those who were not able to join the sessions that were offered in the spring. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Danielle Villemaire at Recognizing that the pharmaceutical industry is gradually decreasing its involvement in professional development for physicians, the FMOQ s DFP has increased its efforts by offering a number of online training programs (www.fmoq.org). These highquality courses were recorded during recent Federation conferences and are available at a reasonable cost. In addition to being accredited, they offer doctors the ability to learn in the comfort of their home and to maintain their competencies. There are package deals currently available. In addition, we hope that in the near future, these courses will be eligible for the continuing medical education allowance fund. You recently received your annual statement of training credits from the FMOQ. While the average in the province is 21.5 hours, in Montreal, we note that the average is 18.5 hours. The decrease in participation is reflected in this statistic. We are therefore encouraging physicians in Montreal to try to match the provincial average. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the AMOM annual training conference, which will take place on November 22, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The following topics will be offered: AF anticoagulation therapy in prevention of CVA; treatment of hyperactive bladder by general practitioners and the evaluation and treatment of lower back pain. The conference will start at 12:30 p.m. and will be followed by the annual general meeting. The day will end with a dinner sponsored by AMOM for its Dr. Daniel Rouette members and their spouses. If you are interested in attending, please register with Mrs. Villemaire. We are hoping that there will be a large number of participants.

9 Committee on Anglophone Physicians Through the analysis of the results of the survey conducted by the AMOM Committee, AMOM has been able to identify that we should be taking a closer look at the relationship of the Association with its Anglophone members and vice versa. It is important to note that Anglophone physicians represent25% of our membership. Following recommendations of the AMOM Committee, the Association s Board decided to establish a committee on Anglophone physicians, with a mandate to review the situation. I have had the pleasure of chairing this committee, whose members include Dr. Anita Brown-Johnson, Dr. Yael Acre and Dr. Didier Serero. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their openness, their availability, their support and their commitment to their Anglophone colleagues. Their contribution has made my work much easier. At our first meeting, we proceeded with a brief review of the recommendations of the FMOQ Committee on Anglophone physicians, which dates back to 1986! Dr. Brian Gore, Dr. William Barakett, and Dr. Isaac Wilchesky wrote the following sentence in their report, which, in large part, summarizes the spirit at the time: The FMOQ must become more familiar and accessible to its Anglophone members. There is a perception among our Anglophone colleagues that there is a we and they relationship. Without going into the details, we were surprised to note that over 25 years later, several of the recommendations from the Committee on Anglophone physicians of that time still seem current today. Why are we still talking about this? Are the underlying problems basically related only to language? Are we really two solitudes? In Quebec, October 2013 aren t the majority of physicians bilingual? Are not the challenges of family medicine practice and the problems that family physicians face in their day-to-day practices the same, overall in our province, regardless of language? Do Anglophone Dr. Benoît Brodeur physi cians feel marginalized? Are they indifferent? We also focused on a review of AMOM s linguistic policy, which is based on that of the FMOQ. It is mainly a policy of translation and it has been in effect since It does not appear that there has been any major modification since then. In order to validate the perceptions of the committee members, we proceeded to develop a survey. The main objectives of the questionnaire were to get to know our Anglophone members better (demographics, practice settings, their habits with regard to continuing medical education, etc.) and to allow them to let us know what would be the best ways for AMOM to improve its visibility, its accessibility and to build a sense of belonging among its Anglophone members. The invitation to participate in the survey was sent to 321 anglophone physicians in Montreal whose addresses we had. We obtained an excellent rate of response of 31.3%, which exceeds the response rate for all other surveys carried out by AMOM to date. This is a very positive outcome and we can conclude at the outset that the physicians targeted are not at all indifferent. Below are some of the highlights of the survey which will allow the members of the committee to draft recommendations to be presented to the AMOM Board: Newsletter from the Montreal Association of General Practitioners Photo : Le Médecin du Québec (cont d on page 11) 9

11 Committee on anglophone physicians (cont d from page 9) 89% prefer to attend continuing medical education in English. 51% of respondents attend the conferences organized by McGill University, whereas only 2% attend those organized by the FMOQ. 88% only rarely or never attend CME conferences in French. Only 18% read Le Médecin du Québec as compared to 47% who read Canadian Family Physician and 38% who read the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association. 98% only rarely or never do the post-tests in Le Médecin du Québec. The vehicle that they prefer by far for their union information is the Flash-AMOM (56%) followed by the English translation of L OMNI (28%). A significant number (42%) would like AMOM to be involved in CME programs in English. 90% only rarely consult or have never consulted the AMOM website. 64% only rarely consult or have never consulted the FMOQ website (no page in English). 51% would increase their visits to our website if there was more content in English. In the open-answer questions, their main expectations of AMOM are to obtain support and information that would lead to a better understanding of the new agreement and optimize billing, and higher visibility or accessibility of the Anglophone representative(s) of AMOM. According to them, the best strategies that AMOM could use to increase its visibility and penetration among Anglophones would be to: offer regular updates on billing and on the different aspects of the negotiations organize or provide financial support for CME programs in English organize information meetings in English offer clinics on billing in English As this newsletter was being written, the AMOM Committee on Anglophone Physicians was tabling its final report that was to be approved at the September Board meeting. We believe that it is important for AMOM to seize upon the interest and momentum created by the high response rate to the survey and to rapidly take concrete actions that will enable us to do a better job on our mandates of service and union representation for our Anglophone members.
