Ageing, chronic, depression, ethics, health equity, integrative med, nursing, policy, spiritual care are just a few of the topics covered here by a host of healthcare professionals who commit their time and energy to improving healthcare each and every day and in their own way. No need to pack your bag or call a cab because it's happening right here, right now and you're invited. Years of work and experience distilled and presented in written and video form. If the work is worth doing, it's worth sharing and here is where that sharing takes place. Because, knowledge is no longer the privilege of the few but the right of the many.
