The Final Brief
The Ontario election is on June 12, 2014. On June 10, we are pleased to present. . .the final brief: Yes Minister, appropriate care actually decreases utilization.

Together Tom Closson and company will explore:

  • How can we plan for healthcare if we don’t address variation?
  • How do we get the best care? Everywhere.
  • How can the Ministry address the challenges of providing efficient care and appropriate care – at the same time?

The political parties are invited to send their policy teams.
