Roy Romanow's Dialogue in Health Care:
Evidence based research with average and standard deviation

"Americans are apt to be unduly interested in discovering what average opinion believes average opinion to be..."

John Maynard Keynes, British Economist




Until some years ago I would streamline everything, I would have a job to do and I would streamline it making sure there wouldn't be any repetitive or duplicate work, and the job would be well documented so that it could be maintained for any future need. Today, I don't streamline anything and I tell my sons James and Rico to be redundant in their life as life is really a metaphor of metaphors, the more metaphors you can make about anything and the happier everybody is.




Therefore, there is no quick fix for anything which is wrong, what is needed is the opportunity to understand and learn as many metaphors as possible. Our health care system is eroding and Premier Ralph Klein of Alberta has his own plan to fix it and Premier Lorne Calvert has another plan to fix it, and in the meantime Roy Romanow is touring Canada and the world to come up with the best health care model to fix our health care system. The major focus of all the proposed quick fixes for health care is more money from Ottawa and the degree of privatization.




The "Wellness" health care model implemented by Roy Romanow in Saskatchewan didn't work, and therefore health care gurus have invented the new promotional term "primary health care." Roy Romanow will be entertaining a dialogue with all Canadians through the Internet and special evidence based surveys will be prepared where respondents will key their answers on a scale one to ten, one being "I absolutely agree" and ten "I absolutely disagree." Roy Romanw's final report will be wrapped up with the Canadian flag, would include the evidence based average and standard deviation for each question of the surveys, and would be marketed under the inventive name "primary health care" for all Canadians.
