Les leaders en santé du Canada affrontent une foule de défis dans le secteur de la philanthropie en santé. Ces défis ne se limitent pas à l'aspect pratique des mesures à prendre pour réussir, mais également à des questions éthiques. Est-ce que la collecte de fonds est acceptable si elle donne lieu à des partenariats avec des entreprises qui participent à l'apparition de maladies causées par le mode de vie? Quand la reconnaissance méritée envers les donateurs ou les bénévoles dépasse-t-elle les bornes et favorise-t-elle un accès privilégié aux soins? Les décisions éthiques de la philanthropie en santé doivent opposer les témoignages de reconnaissance ou les partenariats avec les donateurs au bien public, qui s'inscrit dans le mandat des établissements de santé et qui fait partie et des obligations fiduciaires des hôpitaux et des cliniciens envers les patients...

Predictive analytics can support a better integrated health system providing continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive person-centred care to those who could benefit most. In addition to dollars saved, using a predictive model in healthcare can generate opportunities for meaningful improvements in efficiency, productivity, costs, and better population health with targeted interventions toward patients at risk.

Value in healthcare is a challenge that is faced all over the world; costs continue to rise despite efforts to increase quality and efficient healthcare delivery. Heart failure is a progressive chronic condition that has been demonstrated to benefit from close monitoring with positive effects on mortality and morbidity when well managed. This article will review the Porter model for value in healthcare by comparing the current state of heart failure management in Ontario, Canada, with the six key concepts of the value agenda...

Adriana V Caggiano, Said Y Al Kindi, Glen E Randall
As the ease of obtaining genetic information for both the diagnosis and treatment of diseases has become increasingly common, so have concerns about the misuse of such information. The obstacles Canada faces in adopting genetic non-discrimination legislation have left health leaders with a lack of clear direction. Using the Kingdon agenda-setting framework, this article will identify lost opportunities for policy change and will analyze the potential for the adoption of a genetic non-discrimination policy in Canada...

Lynette Reid
Health leaders in Canada face a myriad of challenges with healthcare philanthropy-not just the practical question of how to be successful but also ethical questions. Is fundraising in partnership with companies that are implicated in the so-called lifestyle diseases appropriate? When does appropriate recognition for donors or volunteers cross the line into facilitating preferential access to care? Ethical decision-making in health philanthropy considers appropriate recognition or partnership in donor relations in the context of the public good with which healthcare institutions are entrusted and the fiduciary responsibilities of hospitals and clinicians to patients...

Fanor Balderrama, Christopher J Longo
Smoking has a tremendous negative impact on the Canadian economy and contributes to growing costs in the healthcare system. Efforts to reduce smoking rates may therefore reduce strain on the healthcare system and free up scarce resources. Academic literature on economic smoking cessation incentives presents a countless variety of interventions that have met with varying degrees of success. This study reviews six different variables used in the design of incentives in smoking cessation interventions: direction, form, magnitude, certainty, recipient grouping, and target demographic...

The transition from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) can be challenging for youth, their families, and healthcare providers. The purpose of this study was to identify, summarize, and assess evidence found in scholarly literature regarding the economic impact on youth and their families during the transition from CAMHS to AMHS. Relevant studies were identified through a search of 7 electronic platforms. The search identified 829 articles; 5 of which met all inclusion criteria...

Bruce Harry Swan
The leadership shift from directing people to action to inspiring people to action will focus on the coach approach to leadership and will clearly demonstrate how taking this approach not only gives lasting cultural change but also builds leadership capacity. Current examples of healthcare organizations that have implemented this approach will be shared along with the use of best practices coaching skills that embrace the International Coach Federation core competencies and code of ethics.

Ken Tremblay
In the wake of transformational change powered by the digital era, resultant leadership challenges and strategies essential for successful change, both tactical and cultural, are linked to defined capabilities within the Systems Transformation domain of the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. Honed from experience, specific softer leadership behaviours supporting system transformation are both described and reinforced. Further, a matrix combining the LEADS framework capabilities with these more specific behaviours is offered as a planning tool that leaders may reflect upon and map out key activities associated with their sponsorship of significant change...

Eric Wasylenko
The moral divide between proponents and opponents of medical assistance in dying is wide and can be ascribed to a number of dichotomous beliefs. This article addresses a particular and less commonly described platform for the divide: human acquiescence to physical decline and death as an important stage of life, versus presumptive human mastery over the timing and manner of some peoples' death. Practical ideas are then offered for health systems that wish to bridge the divide, to provide both robust palliative end-of-life care and medical assistance in dying programs for their patients, while keeping health workers whole...

Cognitive bias can be a serious impediment to rational decision-making by health leaders. We use a hypothetical case study to introduce some basic concepts of bias with examples of mitigation strategies. We argue that the effect of biases should be considered when making every significant administrative decision.

Lynn Stevenson, Kimberley Vaulkhard
Active ongoing learning is a foundational expectation of every healthcare leader whether at the beginning or end of their career. In order for leaders to be nimble and responsive to the ongoing changes in the healthcare environment, they must actively engage in a multiplicity of learning activities. One way of ensuring diversity of learning is for emerging and established leaders to learn together through formal or informal mentoring. This article will explore that intersection and the value add of a reciprocal mentoring relationship where mentor and mentee roles become blurred and joint learning becomes the goal...

Although significant advances have occurred in medical and related sciences, the quality improvement and patient safety movements have been slow to gain traction. There are many "pockets" of progress around the globe; however, the scale and spread has been slow. Stimulating culture and system change in healthcare requires a definitive change in leadership style and approach. Health leaders of today must commit to the critical success factors and demonstrate the attributes necessary to create change and raise the bar for quality improvement and safety...

The culture of a healthcare organization plays a critically important role in determining whether strategic plans will be executed effectively and organizational goals will be achieved. A culture of high performance serves as a foundation that supports the implementation of healthcare strategies and enables health leaders to evaluate, select, optimize, and sustain a full portfolio of improvement initiatives linked directly to top priorities and mandates. This article argues that a culture of high performance should become an integral part of all strategic planning and, further, that a strong and explicit leadership commitment, beginning with the board and CEO and extending throughout all leadership levels, is required to implement a successful culture transformation...

Danielle de Moissac, Sarah Bowen
While there is strong international evidence that language barriers present obstacles to healthcare access, quality and safety, little research has been conducted on the experience of official language minorities in Canada. This multiple method research used on-line and paper-based surveys, combined with semi-structured individual interviews to explore the experience with access to care of Francophone minorities living in four Canadian provinces. The majority of Francophones surveyed reported limited access to French language services and described an environment where low importance is given to addressing language barriers within the health system...

The challenges of providing equitable and timely access to high-quality care are numerous, and the proposed solutions are well documented. However, frequently absent from discussions dealing with access to care is how access is being defined and by whom. This article demonstrates the importance of engaging individuals and communities when defining access and developing improvement strategies, and the experience of an Indigenous regional health and social services authority.
