Healthcare Associations in Canada: How Collaboration is Changing the Future of Healthcare
The pandemic has challenged healthcare providers globally as they strive to keep pace with increased demands for emergency care. Canada has faced severe shortages in PPE (personal protective equipment) and associations were already concerned about physician health and burnout before the pandemic started. How are Canada’s healthcare associations helping their members in this time of crisis? Through new alliances and unprecedented nationwide collaboration, associations are innovating and finding new solutions to the crisis. In this panel discussion, three healthcare association executives share how they have successfully managed widespread change initiatives, remained responsive to member needs, and how they’re combined efforts are changing the future of healthcare.
