Welcome to a seminar with Professor Jean-Louis Denis from the École Nationale d’Administration Publique (ÉNAP) Canada.

The seminar will focus on the challenges and prospects to better engaging doctors in the transformation and improvement of healthcare systems in Canada. Attention will be paid to a set of potentially convergent changes at policy, organizational and clinical levels that may influence the ability to engage doctors in leadership roles for health system improvement. Key initiatives to support doctor's engagement and leadership will be discussed. For further information or ideas for collaboration, please contact Ellen Kuhlmann.
