COVID-19: Leaders from the Health Community Identify Lessons from the First Wave and Concerns for the Second
On October 2, 2020, Dalhousie’s Faculty of Medicine and the MacEachen Institute for Public Policy and Governance (MIPP) hosted a roundtable at which 27 people met online to discuss what went well and what lessons were identified from the health sector’s response to COVID-19. Participants included senior representatives from both the public health and healthcare systems of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, as well as academics. Most of the participants were from Nova Scotia, which was the focus of most of the discussion.
The briefing note starts by highlighting selected observations that were drawn from these discussions, and summarize the goals and methods and the discussions that took place at the session.
