The NPS takes the pulse of Canada’s medical profession through input from Canadian physicians, residents and medical students. The data supports health care planning, research, policy, curriculum development, and advocacy.

There’s no doubt that the findings from the NPS have a significant impact on our ability to influence health care policy in Canada. The answers we receive help to bring clarity to important decisions that will affect physicians and their patients.
