Fixing the other health care issue

Tue, 2012-09-25 11:26

Despite high per-capita spending, health care in Canada consistently underperforms, according to the Commonwealth Fund, which tracks indicators for accessibility, timeliness and outcomes across a number of developed countries. The system that is straining to meet demand today will face an even higher burden in the years ahead, as the population ages. A number of Canadian business schools are looking to meet this challenge by educating future health care managers to bring new perspectives to old problems.

Over the last two years, I have spent my time at McGill University’s law faculty where my passion for sustainability has grown tremendously. Taking courses on environmental law and business law was an eye-opening experience. Often enough, the law responded too slowly to sustainability issues yet business had the capacity and resources to act immediately.
