Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Excellent Care For All Act

The Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA), which received Royal Assent in June 2010, is a landmark piece of legislation for Ontario. It fosters a culture of continuous quality improvement where the needs of patients come first. The introduction and implementation of this legislation is a clear indication to the people of Ontario that their health care providers and their government:

  • Are committed to creating a positive patient experience and delivering high quality health care;
  • Are responsive and accountable to the public;
  • Believe that quality should be the goal of everyone involved in delivering health care in Ontario;
  • Understand that all health care organizations should hold their executive teams accountable for its achievement providing quality care and meeting quality goals; and Recognize the value of transparency.
  • The legislation requires that every health care organization (currently defined as a hospital within the meaning of the Public Hospitals Act):
  • Establish a quality committee to report on quality-related issues;
  • Develop an annual quality improvement plan and make it available to the public;
  • Link executive compensation to the achievement of targets set out in the quality improvement plan;
  • Conduct patient / care provider satisfaction surveys;
  • Conduct staff surveys;
  • Develop a Patient Declaration of Values following public consultation;
  • Establish a patient relations process to address and improve the patient experience
