Topic: "When patients and their families confront the challenges of unwellness and uncertainty about the future, it is unsurprising that they can become alienated by the intimidating status and power imbalances inherent in modern medicine, overwhelmed by unfamiliar language, not least fragmented responsibility, and care complexity." - Dr. Andrew Carson-Stevens

Topic: "Recently (2018), there was a provincial patient safety incident that involved hundreds of cancer patients receiving less than their intended dose of chemotherapy. Each patient was reviewed by Medical Oncologists, and more than 90% of the underdosed patients were described as, ‘clinical harm unlikely’." - Katelyn Balchin
