The way in which BC’s health system is organized plays a significant role in pandemic preparedness, response and recovery. Integrated health system responses are critical in preparing for and responding to outbreaks in high-risk settings and protecting acute care capacity. Regional structures and processes enable rapid decision-making and mobilization of resources, and partnerships protect some of the most vulnerable populations. Our structure has varying strengths and weaknesses, but in this instance is beneficial in coordination, standardization and comprehensiveness.
Each Longwoods Breakfast Series is a year of healthcare learning briefings. Each season we provide monthly educational sessions that provide invited leaders in healthcare the opportunity to share new ideas, policies and/or best practices with colleagues. Our speakers are C-level executives, notable researchers, cabinet ministers, deputies, or leaders from the academic community. Currently these online briefings are 45 minutes long, concise and to the point. A full web version may be made available on Longwoods.com after the live presentation.
The live sessions are freely available to HealthcareBoard members.. Please click here to learn more about becoming a member.
