“Eminent Domain: How family medicine can reclaim the future”

Join us on Friday at 8 am as Mr Steven Lewis, health policy expert, leads the discussion at the keynote address. Steven Lewis is a health policy and research consultant based in Saskatoon and an adjunct professor of health policy at Simon Fraser University.
Before resuming a full-time consulting practice, he headed a health research granting agency and spent seven years as CEO of the Health Services Utilization and Research Commission in Saskatchewan. Mr Lewis has served on boards and committees for various health policy and research organizations, including the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Governing Council, the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, and the Health Council of Canada.
The principles of family medicine are even more vital than they were a generation ago, as the population ages and managing multiple comorbidities becomes the central work of contemporary health care. To fulfill its potential, family medicine will have to transform itself, in the classroom, in the community, and in the workplace. This talk will identify the key elements of transformation and why the future of the health care system depends on it.
