"Happy Holidays" to our readers, authors, reviewers, supporters and friends -  from everyone at Longwoods


"During the year’s darkest months, major religions invite us to celebrations of light – Eid (Islam), Diwali (Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism), Hanukkah (Judaism), and Christmas (Christianity). You who are professionals, technologists, support workers, educators, researchers or leaders in health and health care need to know that, for people and communities in their darkest or most uncertain moments, you are bearers of light. In these days of celebration, we give you and invite you to give each other the gift of appreciation and gratitude for the light that shines through your compassion, competence and presence in local, regional, national and global health systems.” Sister Elizabeth M. Davis

Our goal is to ensure that patients get the care they need no matter who they are and that the local health care system is there for them no matter where they live... I look forward to hearing from patients and our health care partners as we continue to improve one of the best health care systems in the world – one that truly puts patients first.”  Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, speaking about the next stage of the Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care


“I dunno, maybe it's the season, but I feel especially moved by the plight of doctors at the bottom of the medical politics food chain.” From this essay by Steven Lewis: A Man for All Sections: Physicians, Heed Thy Hobbes.
