October 15, 2020—Healthcare is approaching a critical juncture. Will it follow the path of yesteryear where fiscal expediencies drive a cost-cutting agenda regardless of outcomes, effectiveness and efficiency? Or will Canada come together and develop a consensus on a more sensible way to promote the health of the population and take better care of vulnerable people in need?
In a joint submission to the C.D. Howe Institute Conference “Change Accelerator: A Post-COVID Healthcare Reform Agenda,” held on September 30, 2020, Don Drummond and Duncan Sinclair argue that health and healthcare’s stakeholders – providers, practitioners and patients – must step forward to lead the process of reform.
