October 2011

Dr. Richard Lewanczuk, from Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta, discusses models of chronic disease management, and asks whether such a model is useful in discussions of addiction. Dr. Lewanczuk looks at some of the less visible factors that weigh on Alberta's high healthcare costs, and suggests looking to communities, environments, and effective policies to remodel the structures around the healthcare system.
