The experience of a physician and head of emergency services
Dr. Valérie Garneau
Head of Emergency Services, CSSS de Trois-Rivières
Dr. Garneau gives us the perspective of a physician and head of emergency services on deploying the Lean Healthcare approach: winning conditions, results of the process, impact on medical practice.
Dr. Jorge Hadad
Director of Public Health, Republic of Cuba
The effectiveness of the Cuban approach to maternal health and early childhood development is based substantially on what the Cubans call the “polyclinic”. This type of institution plays a much broader role than the health clinics found in Québec because it also integrates science, knowledge transfer, parental education and community engagement.
