Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement earlier this month, saying the new health plan aims to improve patient experience, including "moving away from the typical intrusive test." While gynecologist Dr. Céline Bouchard welcomed the news of this new measure, she was surprised by the announcement. "We, the doctors
