Our health care researchers have lost their noodles and they are beginning to make a
minefield for any further research by emphasizing better quality services through further
restructuring along the concepts of centralization and regionalization of services. This is
what the Fyke's report has been prescribing to cure the Saskatchewan health care system.




Canada's health care system was restructured for the worst and now we have one
evidenced based study after another telling us that we have to go through additional
restructuring. Dr. Brenda Hemmelgarn, a co-author of a new Canadian health study, says

sicker patients

"we found that after the one hospital closed and centralization of services, that physicians in fact performed an increased number of coronary procedures on sicker patients and despite that fact, the hospital stays were shorter and their in-hospital mortality was not increased(1)."


Health research guru Michael Rachlis has commented that this study is tangible proof of the
benefits of regionalization and centralization of health care and has stated


"it shows that many of the changes in the health care system have been good, and have benefitted people."

medical centralization

Michael Decter, chairman of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), echoed
again the benefits of medical centralization as supported by another similar study released
by his institute last week(2).



herd mentality

There is no doubt that most health researchers reflect the herd mentality of the forecasting
community(3) and are going to brainwash the public with the fudging of their fraudulent
and deceptive studies(4).




In his Spring 2001 editorial "Better health through research," Laurie Thompson, CEO of
the evidence based Health Services Utilization and Research Commission (HSURC) of
Saskatchewan, says that


increasing the province's spending on health research... would have a huge impact on our future."


So, before health care gets better, we have to endure further studies, further wastes of money,
further brainwashing, and further legislation for the ultimate benefit of our evidence based
researchers, our bureaucrats, and our politicians.
  Quote by Donella Meadows "challenging a paradigm is not a part-time job. It is not sufficient to make your point once and then blame the world for not getting it. The world has a vested interest in, a commitment to, not getting it. The point has to be made patiently and repeatedly, day after day after day"
