Waiting Lists and Nursing
Joann M. Trypuc and Alan R. Hudson

The recent editorial, "Waiting Lists? What Waiting Lists? Not Nursing's Problem" (Pringle 2005), challenges nurses to "step up to the plate" with a pithy and solid analysis of the waiting list issue from a nursing perspective and with recommendations for ameliorating it. Although we are not nurses, and are thereby disqualified from stepping up to the plate, we believe that our experience of working for over a year to implement Ontario's Wait Time Strategy qualifies us to comment on the game.

On November 17, 2004, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, George Smitherman, officially announced Ontario's Wait Time Strategy. The strategy is designed to improve access to healthcare services in the public system by December 2006 by reducing the time that adult Ontarians wait for services in five areas: MRI and CT, cancer surgery, cardiac revascularization, cataract surgery and total hip and knee joint replacements. "Wait time" is defined as the time elapsed between the decision to order a scan or surgery and completion of the procedure.

Racism in Nursing
by Tania Das Gupta

"Most nurses of colour experience everyday forms of racism, including being infantilized and marginalized. Most reported being "put down," insulted or degraded because of race/ethnicity/colour. A significant proportion of nurses, non-white and white, report having witnessed an incident where a nurse was treated differently because of his/her race/ethnicity/colour."
