About the Physicians as Stewards of Resources Policy Forum

8 February 2016
Edmonton, Alberta

The IHE/O’Brien Physicians as Stewards of Resources: Roles, Responsibilities, and Remuneration Policy Forum aimed to inform decision-making regarding the fiscal sustainability of the provincial healthcare system, with a specific focus on physicians as stewards of public resources. The forum, which was attended by Health Minister Sarah Hoffman as lunch keynote speaker, intended to mine ideas and dissect information to help Alberta’s healthcare system adjust to the new economic realities currently shaping the province.

Leading health care professionals from Canada and the United States came to Edmonton to discuss the challenges, as well as possible innovations, in service delivery, remuneration, and system models that can make Alberta’s healthcare system sustainable for decades and generations to come.
