Description

Canada’s health care spending accounts for nearly half a billion dollars a day. There is no sign it will slow down. Canada’s immense challenge is to continue providing adequate and equally accessible health care services while keeping up with its increasing costs. In spite of its progress, the Canada health care system lacks comprehensive information on what best practices, drugs and procedures are most cost-effective and efficient. Pressure continues to mount for governments to better spend their health care dollars while providing more services.

Are our health expectations substantially higher than the available resources?
Is Canada’s health care system centered on health providers or the public interest?
What has been the progress and challenges in making Canada’s health care system more sustainable?

The Centre for Public Interest Accounting at the Haskayne School of Business is pleased to sponsor the "Health Care Forum 2011.” This free public conference will examine the most updated state of health care financing in Canada and bring together universities, involved institutions and the general public in order to understand this important issue.
