Exposes the critical shortcomings of the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), a federal initiative aimed at improving the degree of protection against toxic substances in Canada.

Presents findings about important sex and gender disparities in intensive care use and outcomes, as for example, critically ill women 50 years and older were less likely than critically ill men to be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) and to receive potentially life-saving interventions, and they were more likely to die in ICU or in hospital. Describes patient-level, provider-level and system-level factors that contribute to observed sex and gender disparities in quality and outcomes of care for critical illness.
