Energized and Recharged

It’s great to be back at Queen’s after spending six months away. This was my first academic leave (sabbatical) in over thirty years of academic life. I found the experience energizing and intellectually enriching. The visits to the various centers to which I travelled were stimulating and informative. There is a lot of information that I will be bringing back to Queen’s, and I also hope and believe that I have imparted some of my experience to the institutions that welcomed me as a visitor.

The “Big Squeeze” on hospital budgets in Ontario: Get ready for the backlash

Since shortly after the 2008-2009 downturn, Ontario’s relatively modest economic growth has meant for public services a prolonged period of austerity. For the healthcare sector, where annual growth had previously been in the 6.5% range, the change from the base of 2010-11 to 2.6% per annum, representing a slight decline in real per capita terms, has been painful. This reduction in spending growth has been largely borne by the hospital sector, where after contracted salary increases, inflation, etc., are factored in, there has been essentially zero growth for nearly a decade.

Why is Transformation of Healthcare so Hard?

The need for change in healthcare has been obvious for years. Many studies have been conducted and recommendations made on what’s needed to meet optimally the needs of the population in the current and coming decades. But change itself has been very scarce.

2-minute survey to assess awareness of charitable organizations

We are a group of PhD students on Queen’s campus looking to assess the awareness of charity organizations in Kingston amongst the Queen’s community.

If you are interested in completing this 2-minute survey, please follow the link below. There will be an opportunity to participate in a later survey as well at the end of February. Your participation is not only helping us to complete our project but is providing essential information to the charity organizations within the Kingston community.
