Report on Citizens' Dialogue on the Future of Health Care in Canada( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents finding of a citizen dialogue project that involved 12 sessions held across Canada, each with about 40 randomly selected citizens who were asked to reflect upon four scenarios for reforming the health care system. Scenario 1 explores more public investment the system; scenario 2 involves a form of private payment for health care; scenario 3 offers a more radical restructuring of health care to create a parallel private system; and scenario 4 proposes a major internal restructuring to reorganize service delivery. The participants used information in these scenarios to create their own vision of a future health care system and then worked through the difficult trade-offs & choices to realize their vision. The project also verified the dialogue through a national poll of 1,600 Canadians. The report provides two kinds of analysis of citizens' responses: quantitative analysis of the pre- and post-dialogue questionnaires and the national poll, and qualitative analysis of the video tapes & observers' notes of each session. The workbook used in the dialogue sessions is appended

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do investments in the social determinants of health (such as early childhood development, educational opportunities, the quality of jobs, safe communities, family income) have economic consequences? If so, what particular investments have the strongest relationships with economic outcomes? In April 2007, CPRN, on behalf of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), convened a roundtable of national and international experts to explore the economic case for financing the social determinants of health, building on the 2006 CPRN paper Economic Arguments for Action on the Social Determinants of Health, by David Hay. In this report, Developing a Canadian Economic Case for Financing the Social Determinants of Health: Report on the April 2007 Roundtable, David Hay provides a synopsis of the available research and the roundtable discussion
