Who – Canadian health leaders; NHLC delegates
What – the 3rd Great Canadian Healthcare Debate
When – June 13th, 2017
Where – the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver, BC
Why – to debate and pass policy resolutions that reflect the current Canadian health system context and address the most pressing issues facing the health care system and health leaders today.
HealthCareCAN and the Canadian College of Health Leaders are pleased to invite you to be in Vancouver for the 3rd Great Canadian Healthcare Debate being held on Tuesday, June 13th, 2017, as part of the National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC). Last June, we heard loud and clear from NHLC 2016 delegates that our new debate format resulted in a much stronger event. Building on this success, we are now working to ensure that the 2017 debate is equally engaging!
Mr. Tony Dagnone, a well-known and experienced Canadian health leader, chairs and leads a Policy Resolution Committee (made up of a talented group of health leaders from across the country*) that selected, from all motions submitted, the top ten motions. Early Bird conference delegates are, once again, invited to vote on the top five motions. You, the conference delegates, will be asked to vote on which three motions will be debated during the Conference! So, don’t miss out! Make your priorities known! Be prepared to vote then debate the issues!
Mr. Jeffrey Simpson, the Globe and Mail’s former national affairs columnist, will be moderating the Debate again in 2017. Mr. Simpson’s moderating skills, knowledge of the health sector (he is the author of Chronic Condition: Why Canada’s Health Care System Needs to be Dragged into the 21st Century) and his experience with the Great Canadian Healthcare Debate is sure to lend an exciting flavour to the 2017 Debate.
In 2016, conference delegates voted on three very interesting and important motions to be debated; Indigenous Health Truth and Reconciliation Commission Health-Related Recommendations, Public Reporting of the 15 Never Events and Adopting Key Recommendations from the Report of the Advisory Panel on Healthcare Innovation. After an exciting presentation and debate of the motions, delegates determined overwhelmingly that the motion on Indigenous Health was their number one priority with 74% of the vote!
Issue Briefs for the top five motions of the 2016 Great Canadian Healthcare Debate can be found here.
