This discussion will consider how during the pandemic there has been a proliferation of new health technology initiatives that allow for remote rehabilitation outside of a formal clinic setting. Using the case studies of respiratory and reproductive care, the discussion will blend academic, policy and entrepreneurial perspectives to identify policy priorities related to responsible innovation and the commercialization of homegrown health tech.
This event is offered free of charge, in hybrid format:
Note that all in-person participants are required to demonstrate proof of vaccination against COVID-19 using McMaster University’s MacPass system.

This talk is part of the IRPP’s 50th anniversary event series, What should be on Canada’s policy radar? Held throughout the spring and fall of 2022, these panel discussions will help us to identify the challenges that our decision-makers will face in the coming years, and examine ways in which Canada can promptly address these issues.
