    About the Contributors

    What People are Saying About This

    Gregory Marchildon

    “Raisa Deber probably has more experience using the case approach in health policy and management than any other professor in Canada. This volume fills an enormous gap in terms of the teaching materials available to instructors in these fields.”

    Noralou Roos

    “Deber and Mah’s Case Studies in Canadian Health Policy and Management is a great teaching resource. More than twenty case studies on high-profile topics from genetic testing and wait times to paying for new cancer drugs are covered. The very readable case studies include stimulating sets of discussion questions, and each has an accompanying appendix containing additional details. Students will love the diversity, and faculty will find the book informative and easy to use.”
