early 20th century.
oProfessional organizations were established, placed limits on who is allowed to practice

-Then medical dominance began to decline, female health professions started to increase
-All professions were rationalized - - -> efficiently using health care resources
oWanted professions to be flexible and keep costs low
-Health care division had to decide what type of workers should exist, what will each type do, and what
education is required for it.
oIn Ontario, govt appointed a Health Professions Legislation Review to regulate health
professions.
-Some say reasoning behind notion that non physician providers are cheaper than physicians is related to
societal notion of skills
oWomen associated with lower skill set, and because nurses are a female profession, they should
be cheaper in cost.
oNursing care seen as providing care to families ---> no training needed
-Female health care providers operate within a social system of healthcare that devalues their skills and
knowledge
oNurses are usually cut off first during hospital fiscal restraint
-After health care became responsibility of govt in Canada, govt started to put limits on health care
spending cuz costs were too high
