Claude Castonguay, considered a father of Quebec health care, says there is an urgent need to modernize the Canada Health Act and proposes seven steps to reform.
Published as part of the Canadian Health Care Consensus Group series, this paper by Claude Castonguay is based on remarks made to the Montreal Economic Institute. Castonguay provides seven proposals which he says will save our health care system.
In this paper, Claude Castonguay, Canadian Health Care Consensus Group signatory and former Quebec Minister of Health and Social Affairs, argues that the time has come for government and doctors to explore avenues for solutions in a spirit of cooperation.
