Leading Edge Options to Integrate Care

The Boehm Lectures on Public Health and Healthcare (formerly the Leadership Series) aim to foster a dialogue and engage the public health and health system communities on significant issues facing the health of Canadians.

This sold-out lecture will explore options to transform health systems towards a greater focus on integration and person-centredness. It examines the evidence on the range of strategies to strengthen person-centred health services and systems and how available approaches can meet the various challenges health systems are facing today and to guide the development of more informed policies and practices.


Ellen Nolte, Professor of Health Services and Systems Research
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

As the former lead of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies London office, Dr. Nolte’s talk will draw on her expertise in international health care comparisons and her work on innovative service models that seek to better meet the needs of people with complex and long-term health problems. She will explore effective strategies that place individuals, their families and communities at the centre of the health system and enable people to play an active role in their own care as well as in shaping the system that serves them.
