Value in Volume? Balancing Competing Obligations to One/All Patient(s)

CCHL Bluenose Chapter Education Session. This is the third session in a series of three ethics-based educational events hosted by the Bluenose Chapter.

One of the core challenges for both health care providers and health care systems is finding an appropriate balance between meeting the needs of one patient and meeting the needs of all patients. Decisions about how health care is designed and delivered to meet these needs are based, in part, on values. With an emphasis on patient-centred, effective and efficient care, to name just three relevant values, critically engaging with questions about care that seems to be or is volume-driven becomes important. This webinar will discuss volume-based care, drawing on different examples to both highlight and examine some of these key questions.
