Can We Finally Move Forward to Improve Health Care?

Notes by Denise Kouri

Denise Kouri presents her vision for health care in Saskatchewan: that all residents have timely access to the services they need through a publicly funded and administered system; that no one pays individually for services; that residents receive high-quality services; that users are treated with respect and compassion; and, that health care providers include a range of practitioners and educators delivering a range of therapies and programs in communities and homes.

In this brief report, Kouri recommends ways to realize this vision for health care in the Province. She argues that residents of Saskatchewan must continue demanding high quality services; she also recommends a reorganization of primary care, and an increased emphasis on community-based care. Further, Kouri suggests that greater federal-provincial collaboration is needed.
