Engaging in the change: Co-creation

The following guest blog was written by a friend and colleague, Dr. James Wright, who is a recognized Canadian leader in orthopaedic surgery and health care outcomes research. He has also been very involved in leadership activities, both as a part of his professional work and as a student of the discipline of leadership. Jim recently started a new blog on clinical leadership, and I'm delighted to share one of his posts as a part of Dean on Campus. - Richard

Long overdue: Canada needs a national pharmacare strategy

Another study!

Just a few weeks ago our provincial health ministers secured federal support to study universal pharmacare in Canada.
