From Health Care Reform to Reform for Health: Towards a Sustainable Health Care System


Course description

In a presentation in February 2016 Dr. Hancock presented a radical approach to re-orienting health services: he suggested we blow it up and start again! In that session he touched on aspects of population health promotion, self-care and primary care and suggested three key principles for a sustainable health care system: reduce the burden of disease; reduce inappropriate demand for care; and manage the supply of care efficiently.

In this series we will delve further into each of these themes, moving from the theme of health care reform to the theme of reform for health. The latter is based on the recognition that health care is not the main determinant of health. If we are serious about improving the health of the population, we need to reform the way we organize our society, our economy and our governance processes. Here are the themes for each of the three sessions:

November 8: Most care is self-care: Towards a comprehensive self-care system

November 15: Primary care: The heart of health care

November 29: Beyond Health Care: Governance as if health mattered
