Speaker: Dr. Jonathan Irish

Dr. Jonathan Irish, Provincial Head, Surgical Oncology Program, Ontario Health-Cancer Care Ontario and University of Toronto professor, talks about the CMAJ publication reporting the size of Ontario’s surgical backlog due to the pandemic and the time and resources required to clear the backlog. The data will play an important role in health planning moving forward, and the modelling framework can be adapted to other jurisdictions.
