The Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation is launching the Centre for Sustainable Health Systems (CSHS) with an inaugural Masterclass in Sustainable Healthcare.
Two day workshop geared towards senior and mid-level managers interested in health care sustainability.
Why Sustainable Healthcare?
Climate change is recognized as the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century (Lancet, 2018; WHO, 2015; UCL/Lancet Commission, May 2009). Canada’s healthcare system is a large, resource-intensive sector of the Canadian economy, responsible for at least 4.6% of national carbon dioxide emissions annually (Eckelman, 2018). While the sector dedicated to extending and improving our quality of life is a significant contributor to a phenomenon putting human health at risk, there is a significant opportunity for the health sector to develop and implement sustainability interventions that protect, promote, and prioritize health.
