Want Improved Healthcare Performance? Treat Canadian Doctors Like Finnish Teachers by Steven Lewis
... few Canadian doctors ... think and act like Finnish teachers. For that to be the norm, we the public will have to choose them wisely, educate them rigorously, expect much from them, provide them with superb working conditions, trust them, and celebrate their achievements.
