If you want to educate yourself about the status of our health-care system prior to our upcoming election, I suggest you focus on one word – sugammadex.
If you educate yourself about this one drug you can gain perspective on how patient-centeredness, responsible stewardship, professionalism, collaboration, transparency, honesty, and individual risks within the health-care system translate to you.
You can start by Googling albertadoctors.org/leaders-partners/leaders/sections/section-members/anesthesia and contacting the anesthesia section of the Alberta Medical Association.
Then I suggest, in light of the upcoming election, you ask your MLA what they understand the issues are and what their positions are.
