A Snapshot of Ontario’s Health System

Are you interested in learning about how decisions about healthcare are made in Ontario?

The McMaster Health Forum Student Leadership Team is thrilled to bring you a crash-course on Ontario’s health system for beginners – whether you’re planning a career in health policy or you want to know how health policy decisions affect you!

Date: January 26th 2017, 12:00 – 1:30 PM

Location:McMaster Health Forum (Mills Library 4th Floor)

In this one and a half hour workshop Dr. Kaelan Moat will highlight the key ‘big-picture’ concepts that are most important to know about Ontario’s health system. Not only is this the perfect opportunity to understand how the system and its building blocks work together but this is also the time to question if the system has to be set up this way! Are we doing the best we can? Are there hidden agendas in the health system? What role can you play?

For those of you who are interested in a more in-depth understanding for your projects, courses (HTH SCI 3GG3), or for leisure, check out: Ontario’s Health System: Key Insights for Engaged Citizens, Professionals and Policymakers. Available on amazon:
