The recent Chaoulli Supreme Court decision and health care proposals by Quebec and Alberta have led to renewed debate on how best to restructure the Canadian health care system. This volume offers a timely analysis of access and wait-times, alternative modes of health care delivery, and funding methods from the perspective of evidence-based policy making. In an attempt to shift the debate away from polemical positions, contributors use empirical analysis to better understand what works and what doesn't. Topics include the demand for private health insurance, the impact of regional reforms, the effectiveness of drug programs, alternative human resource strategies, managed competition in home care, the economics of obesity, prioritization of health technologies, and planning for the next pandemic. Contributors include Margaret Denton (McMaster), Herb Emery (Calgary), Aidan Hollis (Calgary), Ana Johnson-Masotti (Queen's), Harvey Lazar (Queen's and Victoria), Greg Marchildon (Regina), Lisa Powell (Illinois), Sebastian Schneeweiss (Harvard), Kumanan Wilson (Toronto), and Dominika Wranik (Dalhousie).
