The Government of Alberta has opened registration to participate in upcoming engagements about the restructuring of Alberta Health
On November 8, 2023, the Premier of Alberta and the Minister of Health announced a significant restructuring of the current healthcare system
and emergency medical services (EMS) in Alberta.
These changes will focus on four priority provincial sectors: primary care, acute care, continuing care, and mental health and addiction, with the goal of ensuring that all Albertans receive the best care within a single, fully integrated, high-functioning system.
The Government of Alberta (GOA) has committed to engaging with health care workers and the general public
starting in January 2024 and running until mid-March 2024. There will be approximately 30 in-person engagement sessions hosted throughout the province to allow the GOA to gather further insights into the successes, challenges, and strengths of the current health care system. Further information and details on how to register to attend an engagement session can be found online
The RMA has created an Alberta Health Restructuring Information Sheet
that will provide members with necessary details about the health restructuring, as well as RMA questions and considerations about the upcoming changes to the health care system. RMA members are encouraged to use this information sheet to guide their participation in engagement sessions.
