Developing an Innovation Mindset in our Health System

“Stakeholders within a system have within them the creativity and wisdom to confront even the most difficult challenge” – Juanita Brown.

Health leaders need to adopt an innovation mindset with a systems lens that allows them to appreciate the health ecosystem complexity and move towards collaboration and developing coalitions and trust with the private, public, and social sector.

At this event we are inviting speakers from the provincial government, private, public and social sectors to share their stories about the current state of innovation and their vision for the future. This will be followed by interactive breakout sessions where the audience will dive deeper into related topics and discuss changing the narrative.
