Oxygen Access in Canada Reports

Breathing is a fundamental right, yet many Canadians living with pulmonary fibrosis encounter challenges getting access to the home oxygen therapy they need. To understand all aspects of this issue CPFF commissioned three groundbreaking national research surveys – with patients and caregivers, medical professionals, and oxygen providers, to gain their valuable perspectives. Additionally, a collective of prominent physicians including Dr. Kerri A. Johannson (Department of Medicine, Department of Community Health Sciences, and Interstitial Lung Disease Program, University of Calgary) undertook a detailed review of the issues at hand that guide (and restrict) access to oxygen therapy for patients in need.

The Access to Oxygen Therapy in Canada Report summarizes all of the research CPFF conducted
with all stakeholder groups in 2022 and 2023. Individual reports delve into more detail for each
of the groups surveyed.
