A Citizen's Guide to Health Indicators
January 31, 2011 - The Health Council of Canada has released its latest publication, A Citizen's Guide to Health Indicators. Written for individuals with an interest in health care and in using health information, this resource provides an introduction to health indicators-what they are, where they come from, what their limitations are, and how they can influence health care decisions and policies.
Stories in the guide outline how indicators are used to make real-life choices. Also included are links to helpful resources and information on what makes a good health indicator, and the challenges associated with using health indicators.
