Longwoods Breakfast Series:
Briefings from and for Healthcare Leaders

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.

10AM – 10:45AM Eastern

Dr. Michael Gardam, Chief Executive Officer, Health PEI

Topic: Stranger in a Strange Land: Moving from Toronto’s Hospital Row to PEI

The healthcare systems in downtown Toronto versus PEI could not be further apart. In May 2021 Dr. Gardam left academia to take on the role of CEO of the PEI provincial health authority, with the intent of trying to bring complexity science-based approaches to reforming Canada’s smallest provincial healthcare system, all while still in the grip of a pandemic. Working in a small system has laid bare the acute challenges facing Canadian healthcare, and has required Dr. Gardam to dig into fundamental issues that must be addressed if PEI is going to pull their system back from the brink. Join Dr. Gardam as he discusses these challenges and how Heath PEI is attempting to fix historic barriers to improvement. 

Location: From the comfort of your own home or space via Zoom, Canada
