A new Health Accord for Canada: the physician’s vision for the future of health care

(Sun. Aug. 21, 2:10 pm - 4:00 pm)

The federal government has committed to negotiating a new Health Accord with the provinces and territories by early 2017. An open and interactive dialogue, this session will allow members to provide their valuable front-line perspective on patient care and inform the CMA’s vision for the future of health. This input will be critical as the CMA continues to drive action toward a new Health Accord to strengthen Canada’s health care system.
