Leigh Chapman, Chief Nursing Officer, Health Canada, Tim Guest, CEO, Canadian Nurses Association and Carly Weeks, Health Reporter, The Globe and Mail
Join us for a conversation with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) CEO, Tim Guest, and Canada’s Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), Leigh Chapman focusing on strategies to address today’s health workforce challenges in the context of a global nursing shortage. This event titled “You can’t recruit your way out of a crisis” follows the International Council of Nurses (ICN) Congress, co-hosted by the CNA in Montreal this past July, where the issue of the global nursing shortage was brought to the forefront as one of the most prominent issues in today’s global health landscape.
In this talk, these nurse leaders will cover current issues, and strategic solutions for the future of nursing. With a focus on how we got here, and where we’re going, the discussion topics will include retention, ethical recruitment, and improving work environments for nurses. The speakers will also highlight their hopes for the future of nursing and Canada’s publicly funded healthcare system.

With the growing commitment to understanding and addressing the social determinants of health, there is a clearly identified requirement to focus on improving diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) within Canadian healthcare organizations and systems. Data from the recent pandemic and input from HIROC’s Subscribers have identified that to do this effectively, it is critical to understand racism and systemic factors that contribute to inequity and disparate outcomes for patients, providers, and community members. From the delivery of front-line care to senior leadership and executive functioning, addressing systemic racism presents unique challenges and opportunities for healthcare systems and providers.
This session will include a committed conversation on the importance of achieving safety through addressing systemic racism in healthcare. HIROC will facilitate a discussion of and learnings from a case study presented by the Association of Ontario Midwives (AOM). As the AOM and HIROC's other Subscribers continue to action safety, we collectively seek to develop generalizable knowledge principles to share across the system - all with a view to understanding these challenges and informing actions to address systemic racism within our systems and the professions.

Following three years of pandemic, Ontario children faced escalating waits for medically necessary care. In most communities they wait longer than adults, often impacting their development and always impacting their families. In response, the Ontario government made an historic investment of $330M this year to help pediatric hospitals, mental health agencies and rehabilitation centres permanently increase their capacity to help address the needs of a growing population of children and youth. Join us for a discussion with pediatric leaders about the road ahead and why it matters for kids, their families, and the entire health system.
