A Dose of Reality: Patients Redefining the Future of Health Care in Canada

4th Annual Summit A Dose of Reality: Patients Redefining the Future of Health Care in Canada


Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, 6 Garamond Court, Toronto, ON M3C 1Z5

Join patient groups and health care stakeholders from across the country to continue the conversation about how patients can shape the future of health care in Canada.

Whether you’ve attended past Summits or are new to the event, be sure to join us to:
  • •     Enhance your knowledge about health systems and impacts
  • •     Create synergies and recognition of common issues across patient groups and other health care stakeholders
  • •     Engage policy makers
  • •     Be part of the conversation about how patients can design the health care systems they deserve
Building on the past three years, this year’s Summit will update members of the patient and caregiver community from all disability and disease areas on what’s happening in health care across Canada to improve value for patients. Summit topics will focus on current Value-Based Health Care initiatives in Canada and on federal health care plans.

In addition, the Summit will invite key representatives from each province to share health policy updates and discuss their current and/or potential impact on provincial health care systems and on patients.

The Summit will continue to focus on shifting towards a value-based approach to health care in Canada with a stronger focus on patient outcomes. It will also continue to foster collaboration between patient and caregiver communities and other relevant groups, including researchers, government and non-governmental agencies and other partners. It will do so in part by striving to renew the mandate of the patient working groups for 2020.
