I am engaging Manitobans in a dialogue about health care. I am most interested in how health policy decisions impact your quality of life, for better or worse.
In the end I want to ensure that leaders are held accountable for the health care services they do or, as the case may be, do not provide.
"In Canada we talk a good game about patient-centred care. But it will never be a reality unless it becomes a priority and guiding principle from the upper echelons of power on down." (André Picard, Matters of life and Death - Public Health Issues in Canada, Douglas and McIntyre 2017)
I am a physician working in MB with over 30 years of experience spanning general practice to public health to diagnostic imaging. As a health care provider, I have worked in SK, AB, ON and now in MB. Please feel free to contact me through my blog link and we can go from there.

Let the discussion begin.
