For the final couple weeks in January, MAHCP ran a contest where followers of our Facebook and Twitter pages could share our MAHCP Skilled Experts 30-second spot and be entered to win a $75 gift card.
MAHCP launched a province-wide media campaign in December to raise the profile of our members and the crucial work that they do for Manitoba’s health care system.
This ongoing campaign includes digital ads, television, billboards and a feature website landing page focused on educating and rallying Manitobans for their ongoing support of our cause. The 30-second spot, which is being shown in movie theatres across the province, can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Skhp7hJFUw&feature=youtu.be
When we started the Cineplex contest, the Skilled Experts ad had just over 30,000 views in only one month.
Today the view count on YouTube is sitting pretty at more than 55,900 views, so a huge THANK YOU to all who participated in this contest!
Our hope is that you’ll continue to share this spot with your friends, family and colleagues so that more Manitobans learn about the incredible life-saving and life-bettering work that our members do day in and day out.
And now without delay, we announce that MAHCP member Allison Storseth is the winner of the $75 gift card. Congratulations, Allison!

Friesen told the Free Press Tuesday doctors will be expected to abide by a government policy that all public-sector workers undergo pay freezes for two years, followed by increases no greater than 0.75 per cent in the third year and one per cent in Year 4 of any collective agreement.
The legislative assembly passed Bill 28 to implement the government's public-sector pay regime in 2017. Doctors were included within the provisions of the bill. But the Progressive Conservatives have yet to proclaim it, so it is not yet law.
A coalition of 25 labour unions — not including Doctors Manitoba — is fighting the bill in the courts. A hearing is set to begin in November.
Manitoba's nearly 3,000 doctors will have to do their part to help the province overcome a stubbornly high operating deficit, Health Minister Cameron Friesen says. A four-year contract between the pro...

Nurses at the hemodialysis unit at St. Boniface Hospital have penned a letter voicing concerns over what they are calling a “very unsafe” situation for both patients and nurses.
The letter, which the provincial opposition NDP supplied the media with on Tuesday, says nurses in the hemodialysis unit are being required to be on call at in the peritoneal dialysis unit “for which we have little to no formal training or experience.”
“We have repeatedly asked our manager and director for a meeting to allow us to discuss our concerns and to come to a consensus for a way to move forward in this situation,” the letter, signed by 37 nurses, said. “Up to this point, those requests have been ignored.”
