Operating in the Dark
What You Need to Know About Canada's Doctors and HospitalsBook - 2000
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 comfort and convenience of the doctors and hospitals, with the vulnerable sick often left to trust blindly, with little way of knowing if they're getting the best care possible. Priest argues convincingly that for a fair and accessible health care system, we must demand more information from the doctors and hospitals that keep patients in the dark.
