by Patrick Fafard, Judy Watling, Arlene Wortsman

Towards Patient-Centred Health Care: Dialogue on the Future of Health Care reports on stakeholder dialogues held in November and December 2006.  The dialogues were convened by the Ontario Medical Association as part of its Campaign for Healthier Care.  The dialogues identified that to achieve a truly patient-centred health system by 2020, Ontario would need "a balanced system reflecting a continuum of care," with a greater focus on the social determinants of health, more resources for community-based health care delivery, and increased patient awareness and education.
