Falling through the Cracks: Missed Vaccines are Putting our Kids at Increased Risk of Cancer and Meningitis

The COVID-19 pandemic created a crisis in delivering routine and school-based vaccinations to school-age children, resulting in delayed and missed vaccinations for many children across the country. This is putting children at risk of preventable diseases, such as meningitis as well as human papillomavirus (HPV), which could lead to increased risk of cancer later in life. What is the extent of the problem and what are governments and public health agencies doing to catch-up on missed vaccinations? Join us for a discussion with clinicians and public health experts for how this issue has particularly impacted Ontario and what they think needs to be done to address the problem.

Moderator: Kelly Grant, The Globe and Mail

Panelists: Dr. Vivien Brown, Family Physician, Chair of the HPV Immunization Task Force, Board Member of Immunize Canada

Stranger in a Strange Land: Moving from Toronto’s Hospital Row to PEI

The healthcare systems in downtown Toronto versus PEI could not be further apart. In May 2021 Dr. Gardam left academia to take on the role of CEO of the PEI provincial health authority, with the intent of trying to bring complexity science-based approaches to reforming Canada’s smallest provincial healthcare system, all while still in the grip of a pandemic. Working in a small system has laid bare the acute challenges facing Canadian healthcare, and has required Dr. Gardam to dig into fundamental issues that must be addressed if PEI is going to pull their system back from the brink. Join Dr. Gardam as he discusses these challenges and how Heath PEI is attempting to fix historic barriers to improvement.

A Longwoods Breakfast Series event.

As we look to a post-pandemic world, healthcare industry leaders are asking themselves – how do we transform the technology we turned to in times of crisis into efficient, sustainable, secure solutions that drive quality, proactive care both within a hospital and in the community? Quality care delivered both within and beyond the hospital walls requires a range of foundational elements: informatics and data integration to deliver healthcare anywhere; interoperable, secure IT networks; and adoption of a cloud-based platform approach for flexibility and scalability. This session will discuss the need for a solid foundation on which new models of care delivery can be developed to provide connected, virtual, patient-centered care across the health continuum, bringing care closer to where patients are.
