Health Care Reform and the Law in Canada

Meeting the Challenge

Sweeping changes are being proposed as Canadians examine our health care system. But what are the legal implications of health care reform? In this timely collection, lawyers and legal scholars discuss a variety of topics in health care reform, including regulation of private care, interpretation of the Canada Health Act, and the constitutional implications of proposed reforms. Barbara von Tigerstrom is currently studying at the University of Cambridge in England. Timothy Caulfield lives in Edmonton, where he teaches at the University of Alberta.

"I recommend this book without reservation. The essays have several underlying themes, which taken together prove why more lawyers should become knowledgeable about health care reform.... When governments sit down to discuss health care reform, much more than money is on the table." Donna Greschner, Saskatchewan Law Review 2002

"Health Care Reform and the Law in Canada was a pleasant surprise to read. It should be recommended reading for anyone interested in health-care reforms, and it is an unexpected strong argument for retaining our dominantly public health care system." Joan Price Boase, Canadian Public Administration/Administration Publique du Canada

"The papers in this volume are provocative because they tackle questions central to all advanced health care systems, even as the primary focus of the volume is on legal concerns related to policy reforms in the Canadian health care system. How can a balance be struck by policymakers juggling resource limitations, technological breakthroughs, traditional legal obligations, the professional sovereignty of physicians, the demands of patients and the globalization of national economies? A careful reading of these pieces will advance our ability to prepare to strike that balance." Craig Ramsay, American Review of Canadian Studies
