In this workshop, join Stephen Skyvington, author of This May Hurt a Bit: Reinventing Canada’s Healthcare System, to discuss and debate the ways in which Canada’s healthcare system can and should be reinvented. Inspired by his own first-hand experience, both personal and professional, Skyvington will take participants on a journey through some of the key conclusions and recommendations put forth in his recent book. According to Skyvington, the future of healthcare in Canada is in trouble and this will affect all Canadians. However, “there is another way, a better way, to deliver and fund health care here in our country”.
Throughout the day participants will tackle a series of major problems with Canada’s healthcare system. By employing lateral thinking to structure the discussion, they will ask the following questions “How might we? Why would we want to? And what’s stopping us from doing so?”
