"The Canadian Medical Association is serious about improving health for Canadians. We are very aware that it has to be about much more than just the delivery of health care. There¹s room for federal engagement, there¹s room for those outside the healthcare sector to be involved and it is clear that only a national strategy can bring all of these elements together to broker a national conversation. The Queen¹s Health Policy Change Conference series is providing the opportunity for multi-stakeholder engagement through its work in this critical area and I am proud to be a part of it."
Dr. Chris Simpson,
Canadian Medical Association,
Chief of Cardiology, Queen's University
"What is needed to transform and reinvigorate the health-care system? Canada's registered nurses believe we must move beyond episodic, urgent, acute care into accessible, integrated services and programs that are rooted in patient/family-centred primary health care and focused on delivery in homes and communities. CNA is pleased to contribute to the Queen's Health Policy Change Conference Series' efforts to achieve these goals."
Canadian Nurses Association
"Canada Health Infoway supports the Queen's Health Policy Change Conference Series because of its focus on collaboration between a variety of stakeholders and different levels of government. Having the Federal government, provinces & territories at the table has been instrumental to the progress we have made to advance digital health strategies across the country."
"As an organization that works with leaders across the country to accelerate healthcare improvement, CFHI is pleased to support this conference focused on implementing changes that will make a difference for Canadian patients and their families."
Maureen O'Neil, O.C.,
Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement
