From the Canadian Armed Forces’ Surgeon General in response to the public health notice regarding an external, third-party dental clinic in Kingston, Ontario

From the Canadian Armed Forces’ Surgeon General in response to the public health notice regarding an external, third-party dental clinic in Kingston, Ontario

February 19, 2019 – Ottawa – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Brigadier-General Andrew Downes, Surgeon General and Commander of Canadian Forces Health Services Group, issued the following statement on the recent public health notice regarding an external, third-party dental clinic in Kingston, Ontario:

“The Canadian Forces Health Services (CFHS) has been made aware of a concern at an external, third-party dental clinic in Kingston, where a number of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) patients have been treated. We have been informed that a recent public health inspection identified improper cleaning and sterilization of dental instruments, which could result in blood-borne infections like Hepatitis and HIV. While no such infections have been reported and the risk is considered low, we are taking necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of these CAF members.

“We are working with Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Public Health on this matter, and we are reviewing our referral records to identify all members who were treated at this clinic between Jan 2010 and Jan 2019. Those members will be contacted directly with a recommendation to see their health care provider.

“For context, in delivering care to CAF members and other entitled personnel, the Canadian Forces Health Services augments its on-base medical and dental care by referring some patients to external health care providers.

“Any member with questions or concerns are encouraged to consult their health care provider.”

Déclaration

Déclaration du médecin général des Forces armées canadiennes en réponse à l’avis de santé publique au sujet d’une clinique dentaire civile à Kinston, en Ontario

Le 19 février 2019 – Ottawa – Défense nationale/Forces armées canadiennes

Le brigadier‑général Andrew Downes, médecin général et commandant du Groupe des Services de santé des Forces armées canadiennes, a fait la déclaration suivante concernant un récent avis de santé publique au sujet d’une clinique dentaire civile à Kingston, en Ontario.

« Le personnel des Services de santé des Forces canadiennes (SSFC) a été mis au courant d’une préoccupation concernant une clinique dentaire civile à Kingston, en Ontario, où des membres des Forces armées canadiennes (FAC) ont reçu des soins. Nous avons été informés qu’une récente inspection de la santé publique a déterminé que le nettoyage et la stérilisation des instruments dentaires n’étaient pas effectués adéquatement, ce qui pouvait entraîner la transmission d’infections transmissibles par le sang, comme l’hépatite et le VIH. Bien que de telles infections n’aient pas été signalées et que le risque soit jugé faible, nous prenons les précautions nécessaires pour assurer la santé et la sécurité de ces membres des FAC.

Nous travaillons en collaboration avec les services de santé publique de Kinston, Frontenac et Lennox & Addington à ce sujet, et nous examinons les dossiers référés afin d’identifier tous les membres du personnel qui ont reçu des traitements dans cette clinique de janvier 2010 à janvier 2019. Nous communiquerons directement avec ces personnes et leur recommanderons de consulter leur fournisseur de soins de santé.

Pour établir le contexte, dans sa prestation de soins de santé aux membres des FAC et autres membres du personnel admissibles, le Groupe des Services de santé des Forces canadiennes renforce sa prestation de services de soins médicaux et dentaires en dirigeant certains patients vers des fournisseurs externes de soins de santé.

Nous invitons les membres du personnel qui ont des questions ou des préoccupations à consulter leur fournisseur de soins de santé. »

THE PROMOTION OF SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE(SEMICOLON)
THE MAINTENANCE OF OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS, INCLUDING ANY REQUIREMENT TO MAINTAIN A STATE OF READINESS(SEMICOLON)
THE AVOIDANCE OF IMPAIRMENT WHICH WOULD PREVENT THE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF DUTIES
CAF MEMBERS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT CANNABIS SMOKE CONTAINS MANY OF THE SAME HARMFUL SUBSTANCES AS TOBACCO SMOKE AND THEREFORE CAN DAMAGE LUNGS AND CAUSE BRONCHITIS-LIKE SYMPTOMS, COUGHING AND WHEEZING WHICH, ALONE OR TOGETHER, CAN AFFECT THEIR OVERALL PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE
EVERY CAF MEMBER MUST ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT CANNABIS CONSUMPTION CAN CAUSE IMPAIRMENT OF ATTENTION, COGNITION, MOOD, MEMORY, JUDGEMENT AND MOTOR SKILLS. ANY ALLEGED MISUSE OF CANNABIS THAT JEOPARDIZES THE SAFETY AND OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CAF, INCLUDING REPORTING TO DUTY IMPAIRED OR BEING UNABLE TO SAFELY AND EFFECTIVELY PERFORM ASSIGNED DUTIES DUE TO CONSUMPTION OF ANY INTOXICANT, WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND DEALT WITH THROUGH THE MOST APPROPRIATE ADMINISTRATIVE OR DISCIPLINARY ACTION, OR BOTH, AND MAY RESULT IN RELEASE FROM THE CAF
I URGE EVERY CAF MEMBER TO READ WITH GREAT ATTENTION THE DAOD ON USE OF CANNABIS BY CAF MEMBERS (DAOD 9004-1) WHICH IS SIMULTANEOUSLY ISSUED WITH THIS CANFORGEN AND WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE 17 OCT 18. I HAVE ORDERED THAT ALL CAF MEMBERS BE PROHIBITED FROM CANNABIS CONSUMPTION WITHIN 8 HOURS PRIOR TO PERFORMING ANY DUTY

AN ENDURING AND TOTAL PROHIBITION ON CANNABIS CONSUMPTION FOR ANY CAF MEMBER ON A POSTING OR ATTACHED POSTED OUTSIDE CANADA, OR PARTICIPATING IN AN INTERNATIONAL OPERATION, EXERCISE, OR COLLECTIVE TRAINING, UNLESS ON AUTHORIZED LEAVE IN CANADA
THE ABOVE LIST OF PROHIBITIONS DOES NOT PREVENT ANY COMMANDER OF A COMMAND OR OFFICER HOLDING THE SENIOR MILITARY APPOINTMENT IN ANY GROUP AT NDHQ FROM REQUESTING THE ISSUANCE OF CDS ORDERS SETTING OUT ADDITIONAL PROHIBITIONS ON CANNABIS CONSUMPTION AND POSSESSION APPLICABLE TO CAF MEMBERS IN THEIR ORGANIZATIONS
CAF PERSONNEL SHOULD NOTE THAT POSSESSION OR CONSUMPTION OF CANNABIS IS ILLEGAL IN MOST COUNTRIES. PREVIOUS USE OF CANNABIS COULD RESULT IN A TRAVELLER BEING DENIED ENTRY TO THEIR DESTINATION. THE LINK AT REF H PROVIDES ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON CANNABIS AND INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
THE CHAIN OF COMMAND SHALL ENSURE THAT ALL CAF MEMBERS AND SUPERVISORS ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS CANFORGEN AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE CONTENT OF DAOD 9004-1 ON USE OF CANNABIS BY CAF MEMBERS. FURTHERMORE, FOR THOSE CAF MEMBERS FOR WHOM CANNABIS CONSUMPTION IS PROHIBITED FOR A PERIOD OF 28 DAYS OR LONGER, IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT CANNABIS REMAINS A DRUG WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE CANADIAN FORCES DRUG CONTROL PROGRAM. AS SUCH, DRUG TESTING REMAINS AUTHORIZED FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE PROGRAM, AND I EXPECT THIS TESTING TO BE CONDUCTED WHERE APPROPRIATE
AS ALWAYS, I EXPECT EVERY CAF MEMBER TO ACT RESPONSIBLY AND CONDUCT THEMSELVES IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER AT ALL TIMES. SERVING OUR COUNTRY, AT HOME AND ABROAD, REMAINS OUR PRIMARY DUTY. I AM CONFIDENT THAT FAITHFULL ADHERENCE TO THE DAOD AND THIS CANFORGEN WILL ENSURE THAT CAF MEMBERS ARE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY BALANCE SERVICE AND OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS WITH RESPONSIBLE ACCESS TO RECREATIONAL CANNABIS, THUS MAINTAINING THE HIGH STANDARDS WE ARE KNOWN FOR.
