How physicians advocate for patients

Dr. Linda M. Slocombe

Putting Patients First® and advocating for a better health care system are important responsibilities of physicians, according to former Alberta Medical Association President Dr. Linda M. Slocombe (2011-12). 

Prescription Alberta: Ideas for better health care™

In the AMA's Prescription Alberta series, Alberta doctors provide their personal, unscripted views about the health care Albertans deserve.

They describe ways that physicians are improving health care and suggest their ideas for improvements to health care delivery.

The AMA advances patient-centered, quality care by advocating for and supporting physician leadership and wellness.
