Synopsis

PATIENTS FIRST

CLOSING THE HEALTH CARE GAP IN CANADA

"This book is a must read for those who are interested in ourhealth care system and who want to make it better. Dr. Montagueprovides an interesting overview of his journey through hospitalwards, clinical trials, patient registries, patient healthmanagement and chronic disease management programs. Drawing on hisdiverse and unique background, he gives an important history of thepast, analysis of the present and a glimpse of our future."

--David Johnstone, MD

President, Canadian Cardiovascular Society

"Based on significant practice and research experience in thepublic, private and academic worlds, over many regions of Canada,Dr. Montague reveals to the reader, consumer, decision maker andpatient an evolving and, until now, largely overlooked dimension inoptimizing care and outcome. This optimization is important notonly within the context of an individual's care, but within thescope of an entire practice, community or even nation."

--Ross Tsuyuki, PharmD

Director, The Epidemiology Coordinating and

Research Centre, University of Alberta

"Listen to Dr. Montague. He well understands both the problem andthe solution, which is to pull out all the stops and to putpatients first. He advocates patient health management to close themany care gaps. This will result in improved health for millions ofCanadians and then, if we do it right, by emphasizing research andevidence-based health care and not merely budgets, our health caresystem will become more cost effective and our population healthierand more productive."
