About the Author

Universal health care is a constant source of pride and comfort to Canadians. But how much control do we, as health care consumers, have over our own treatment? How do we know which hospitals and doctors are the best? What information is being withheld, and at what cost to our health?

In Operating in the Dark, Lisa Priest discovers that the system is set up for the convenience of the doctors and hospitals. The vulnerable sick are often left to trust blindly, with little way of knowing if they're getting the best care possible.

What Priest finds is that the Canadian health care system is often remiss in communicating information to the people who use it. Priest argues that for a fair and accessible health care system, we must demand more information from those doctors and hospitals that keep patients in the dark.
