At a time when emergency rooms across the country are under-staffed to the point of temporary closures and countless Canadians are without a primary care physician, the need for a better health care system is growing in urgency. While the challenge of innovating health care is complex, solutions are emerging. Approaches such as family health teams, expanding the role of pharmacists and virtual medicine are starting to close the gaps. This webcast will bring health care leaders together to share examples, solutions and next steps for better patient care for Canadians, no matter where they live.
