Reflections on a Medical Makeover (UPDATED)
Wednesday March 7, 2012
2:20 – 3:20 pm, Blusson Hall 9011
3:30 – 5pm, Blusson Hall 9660
In September 2011, the Fraser Health Authority held a Summit to explore key issues related to physician human resources. Titled “Medical Makeover: Redesigning Physician Services for Tomorrow’s Health System,” this Summit commissioned reviews of evidence and recommendations for seven theme areas and invited health decision makers, practice leaders, and academics to use these documents as the starting place for discussion at the summit. The objective was to create an “action blueprint” for Fraser Health around physician human resources.
On Wednesday March 7, Nigel Murray, the CEO of Fraser Health, will be coming to our seminar series to present on the Medical Makeover Summit. This seminar will take place at the usual time in the usual room (3:30 – 5pm, Blusson Hall 9660). Prior to Nigel’s seminar, the FHS graduate students who worked as research assistants for the seven theme areas will reflect on their experience. Nigel Murray will also be attendance at this earlier session and will serve as a discussant to the student reflections. This session will take place from 2 to 3pm in Blusson Hall 11021.
Please join us in celebrating this innovative approach by Fraser Health and the helpful support that our students provided to this endeavor.
