Afternoon Edition – Wednesday House Call  April 1, 2015

Dr Barry Dworkin joins Rob Snow to discuss teh latest health stories of the week.


1) Citing GermanWings story. When and what is a doctor obligated to tell authorities about? For example, revoking drivers licenses (e.g. elderly drivers)? Applying for firearms? A gunshot wound? What MUST you share with authorities as a medical professional?
2) Andre Picard: “Today the Ontario Homeopathy Act comes into force. Sadly, this is not an April Fool’s joke. There is no scientific case for homeopathy. It is undiluted quackery.”
