Public forum in Regina on Wednesday: Dr. Michael Rachlis to speak about public sector solutions to wait times

Public sector innovations are the best way to reduce health care wait times, according to Dr. Michael Rachlis, author of Prescription for Excellence: How innovation is saving Canada’s health system.

Dr. Rachlis, a health policy analyst who teaches at the University of Toronto, will discuss some of these innovations at a public forum in Regina tomorrow, September 15, at 7 p.m. at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

Canadians like Medicare, but we are worried about waits and delays for elective services,” says Dr. Rachlis.  During his presentation, he will outline examples of innovations within the public sector that show we can deal with wait lists without compromising our traditional values of public finance and non-profit delivery.

The public forum is sponsored by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – Saskatchewan Branch, the Saskatchewan Health Coalition, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and the Service Employees International Union West.
