Canada’s health care system by almost all measures and indexes performs at or near the bottom of OECD rankings while being among the most expensive in the world. Patients experience a myriad of waiting lists and health bureaucracy that often create immeasurable suffering and poor results.
Given this reality, how can healthcare in Canada improve and catch up to the rest of the western world? What is the way forward and out of Canada’s unstainable, expensive and low performing health care system?
One pioneering voice for change has been Dr. Brian Day who has spent decades advocating for changes that would put patients first. Dr. Day will be joining Leaders on the Frontier for a fascinating discussion about his personal journey as a Physician, the challenges of our healthcare system and a pathway way forward to better serve Canadians.
