Abstract

Canadian governments must rethink healthcare on five areas of national priority, according to a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Challenging Vested Interests: National Priorities for Healthcare,” authors Åke Blomqvist and Colin Busby find that compared to the healthcare systems of a large group of peers, Canadian systems do not produce enough high-quality care for the money spent.

Keywords: Health Policy, Social Policy
