When: Tuesday, February 15, 2011, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: EN-2006, Engineering Building, Memorial University, St. John's Campus
From the issues of personal responsibility and preventative care to geographic-based health disparities, we need to be prepared to face the future. Human resources will also be a major concern: will we have enough doctors and nurses and other professionals? As healthcare becomes more complex, will we need to change our approach?
These and other fundamental questions will need to be addressed. John G. Abbott, CEO of the Health Care Council of Canada, and Dr. James Rourke, Dean of Medicine at Memorial University, will outline the challenges and offer their solutions, and lead the audience in an interactive discussion session.
