Healthcare in Canada needs governance – clear, determined leadership to pull its poorly coordinated elements together into a real system and put it on course to meet the needs of the 21st century, states a new C.D. Howe Institute Verbatim. In “WANTED: Leadership for Healthcare,” authors Don Drummond, Duncan Sinclair, David M.C. Walker and Christopher S. Simpson outline the necessary steps that leaders must take in revamping Canada’s healthcare system to make it more affordable and accessible for Canadians.
