here are we going?

Why do we have the current health care system in Canada? How did we get it? How good is it compared to those in other countries? Will it be there for us when we need it? Where can it improve? How will we get these improvements? In this lecture, Dr. Dhalla will try to answer these questions and also provide an overview for subsequent lectures.

Irfan Dhalla, MD, MSc, FRCPC is a general internist and Vice- President, Health Quality Ontario. This organization is a government agency with a broad mandate, and serves as the provincial advisor on the quality of health care in Ontario. Dr. Dhalla also cares for inpatients and teaches at St. Michael’s Hospital. His research into improving health care through innovation and policy changes, has garnered him several major awards.
