Solving Healthcare Podcast

Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng cares for the sickest of the sick in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Ottawa Hospital.  His research focuses on making the ICU more efficient and improving access to palliative care services.  To achieve this, he founded the Resource Optimization Network, a multidisciplinary research group working to reduce health spending in this area without compromising care.  Dr. K, as he is fondly called, is a leading contributor helping the department to achieve its vision of shaping the future of Medicine.

In association with the Ottawa Department of Medicine and the Resource Optimization Network, Solving Healthcare is a podcast series featuring interviews and discussions on topics related to improving healthcare delivery in Canada based on the values of cost-effectiveness, dignity and justice in healthcare. The podcasts will challenge the status quo and explore gaps, assumptions and different perspectives in the pursuit of finding solutions to the problems in Canada’s healthcare system.

  • I cannot agree more.

    This podcast is everything I have been saying about psychiatric treatment of patients. I am a psychiatric Nurse and the episode with Dr. Eapen was everything that I know and see in my own practice. I completely agree with what she was saying, my experiences/ opinions are very similar. I can’t say how important it is to have these conversations. A few thoughts of my own: We need to address the lack of resources in the community for psychotherapy and psychiatrist follow up, like was already stated. The wait-lists are creating an increase in ED crisis visits because people can’t wait 6-12 months to speak to a professional and people do not have the ability to pay for private care. We need to address the lack of resources for people who experience homelessness, substance use concerns and dementia as their primary concern. People with these concerns generate long stays due to lack of family and community supports. This blocks beds for patients who have severe and debilitating mental illness. Thank you to the host of this podcast who is willing to approach these hard topics, ill be recommending this to colleagues.
