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 Alberta Medical Association stands as an advocate for its physician members, providing leadership & support for their role in the provision of quality health care.
