The Citizens’ Reference Panel weekend deliberations may have come to a close, but the conversation on how to sustain Ontario’s health care system continues. In this entry, Barbara Pitts discusses the citizen panel’s final report and shares a few examples of public feedback to the panel’s recommendations.
During the last of three weekend deliberations, the panellists spent two days turning the issues and possible solutions they identified last time into solid recommendations, and drafting a final report. Before the report's launch on June 22nd, learn what they came up with from panel chair Barbara Pitts.
The panellists created personas representing groups of the population who rely on health care services. The exercise resulted in many challenging health cases and helped guide the panel’s decision-making process when finding ideas to improve the health care system.
The panellists returned to the second deliberation to discuss different ways to improve the system, learn about recent health care reform efforts and select priority areas. In this entry, panel chair Barbara Pitts reflects on what else emerged that weekend.
