Nachemson Lecture: Mark your calendars

The Institute for Work & Health is pleased to announce that Dr. Terrence Sullivan, CEO of Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), will deliver this year’s Alf Nachemson Memorial Lecture. The lecture takes place on Thursday, November 18 in Toronto.

CCO has been a leader in quality improvements in the past 10 years, using several strategies to improve the performance of cancer services. These strategies include reviewing the performance of each regional cancer centre and working with the centres’ leaders to address problems.

From his perspective as the leader of a health-care commissioning agency with a core commitment to quality improvement, Sullivan will speak on lessons learned and possible considerations for the commissioning of health services more broadly.

The Alf Nachemson Memorial Lecture was established in 2002 to honour Dr. Nachemson’s significant contribution to the use of research evidence in clinical decision-making.
