Memorial Presents: Health Care in 2020 - February 15, 2011
Health Care in 2020: Can Newfoundland and Labrador Lead the Way?
We need to act today to meet the needs of 2020 and beyond, but this raises some significant questions: what kind of healthcare will our province be able to afford, and who will decide?
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.
