Sept 16, 2021 with Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO, the Wellesley Institute.
There were huge inequities in rates of Covid-19 infection, hospitalization and deaths for low income and racialized groups. Data from the vaccination roll-out show similar disparities in immunization rates, but, these figures do not tell the full story. They do not tell the story of the many promising approaches developed at the community, primary care and hospital interfaces that have pushed Canada to the forefront of international discussions about sustainable health system recovery. This presentation will use examples from the pandemic to discuss how we can produce more effective and efficient health systems.

The leadership and management for integrated systems of care requires new capabilities, ones that challenge the status quo and overcome the institutionalized siloes within professions and within organizations. It requires shifting the way we design, lead and implement health and social care. This leadership imperative predates COVID-19, but the global pandemic has become the tipping point for change.

June 8, 2021 with Jennifer Zelmer, President and CEO, Healthcare Excellence Canada. Everyone in Canada wants and deserves excellence in healthcare, but that is not the reality for all. Access to quality care is uneven; health outcomes vary even more widely. And great ideas for addressing these challenges often get stuck as pilot projects, benefiting only the lucky people in the organization or region served by the initial innovator. While that doesn’t have to be the case, it’s also true that safer, higher quality care at scale doesn’t just happen. Smart approaches that move wise practice from spread to scale – and build resilience in the health sector – will be key to health system transformation as we move beyond the current phase of the pandemic.
