The Canadian Medical Association has passed a resolution at its annual general council meeting calling for a national strategy on dementia. The resolution — passed by doctors at their meeting in Yellowknife — is a major victory for the Alzheimer Society of Canada and its CEO, Naguib Gouda.
Speaking on Goldhawk Fights Back on the new AM 740, Gouda said it’s an extremely important step to have the backing of such an organization.
He says doctors are well aware of the effects of Alzheimers, not just by seeing the suffering of their patients, but by seeing how it affects the lives of their own relatives and friends as well.
Gouda had lobbied hard at the convention to get the backing of CMA members.
