: This article proposes a critical analysis of the effectiveness of the nurses' labour market by addressing the classic dimensions of a labour market: supply, demand, and the impact of wages. Specifically, this work aims to (1) clarify the various concepts of labour shortage and present the evidence and (2) provide a critical analysis of the literature in terms of the efficiency of the nurses' labour market, while presenting descriptive statistics relevant on the supply and demand of nurses' lab...

: Geographic imbalances in health human resources exist in a health care system when the composition, level, or use of health care providers does not lead to the same optimal health-system goals in all regions. This can lead to inequitable distribution of health care services, particularly for rural and remote populations. This study aims to determine to what extent the distribution of regulated health professionals and seniors in urban and rural areas of the Canadian jurisdictions is different ...

As per the Canada Health Act, hospital and physician services (Medicare) are covered by the public sector. With the 2004 First Minister's Health Accord showcasing a 10-Year Plan to strengthen healthcare in Canada, significant investments have been made to improve access to these services. The average annual growth rate (AAGR) of spending between 2004 and 2014 was 5.1% for hospitals and 6.6% for physicians. The key policy question is whether or not these increases were just used to boost unit cos...

Current cost-based approach in measuring health care output does not allow decomposition of health care expenditure into price and output components. In this paper we propose an episode-based direction measurement method which closely resembles the concept of output in the system of national accounts. Using data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, we calculate a quality unadjusted output index of the Canadian hospital sector for the periods 1996–2005. The result shows that total ...

Do new technologies for treating acute myocardial infarction (AMI) contribute to increasing costs? To answer this question adequately, one must take into account not only the costs incurred, but also the learning costs associated with new technology. The two techniques examined are angioplasty (the new treatment) and coronary bypass (the traditional treatment). The objective of this study is to estimate the costs of these two treatments based on the "best" production techniques using the "cost-f...

This paper uses data on real per capita total income, the proportion of the population 65 years of age or over, and the ratio of the deficit or surplus to gross domestic product (GDP) for the 10 Canadian provinces for the period 1966 to 1998 to study how these factors impact the Canadian provincial governments' real per capita health expenditures. Stationarity and cointegration issues are addressed, leading us to investigate a cross-section time-series model with a time trend, heteroskedasticity...
