Canadian Multiple Sclerosis Monitoring System
It is estimated that Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world. It affects approximately 55,000 to 75,000 Canadians—yet much is unknown about the disease.
The Canadian Multiple Sclerosis Monitoring System (CMSMS) began in April 2011 through collaboration with an extensive network of experts, including
Beginning in September 2012, the CMSMS was ready to receive data.

The Canadian Organ Replacement Register is a national database managed by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. CORR's mandate is to record and analyze the level of activity and outcomes of vital organ transplantation and renal dialysis activities.
It is necessary to re-start the assessment process with a new admission background form and full admission assessment when a resident moves from one facility to another, even if the period of time in the first facility is short. This practice is essential, as: • The RAI assessment process allows the care team at the new facility to fully assess the resident’s needs and provides a comprehensive picture of the resident. • There is evidence to suggest that relocation of a resident may have a meaningful impact on the status of the resident and thus, re-assessment is warranted. Assessments completed prior to the transfer should still be sent to the new facility to provide a reference point for the care team.
