Hello OntWIG members!
Welcome back after some time off since our last Symposium in April. If you haven't read the 8th Annual Symposium proceedings, please find them linked below to refresh your memory.
Below you will find an email from Health Quality Ontario urging you to provide feedback for a health technology assessment draft in regards to compression stockings that OntWIG has been involved with. The more feedback they receive, the more likely the recommendation will be accepted for funding! Please contribute your thoughts! The link is below to enter your feedback (in blue).
We are looking forward to meeting with you again at the next event or conference call.

Subject: Share Feedback: Compression Stockings for Prevention of Venous Leg Ulcer Recurrence
I am writing to let you know that Health Quality Ontario has drafted a health technology assessment on compression stockings for prevention of venous leg ulcer recurrence and is looking for feedback on both the assessment and the associated funding recommendation that has been made under the guidance of the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee.
The full draft assessments and recommendation reports are attached. Please share your thoughts by October 15, 2018, at 11:59 PM.
Health Quality Ontario, under the guidance of the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee, recommends publicly funding medical-grade compression stockings for the prevention of venous leg ulcer recurrence in people with a healed venous leg ulcer.
Please feel free to forward this email to any individual or organization you think may be interested.
Should you have any questions, please contact HTA@HQOntario.ca.
