André’s Engage Toronto Presentation || Critical Care: What’s Happening in our Health Care System

Where does our healthcare system stand? What are the challenges and opportunities to improve the coordination and effectiveness of services across the nation? How do we re-orient our attention and investments to build a true “health system” rather than the current illness-treatment system?
