Judi Gunter:

I want our members to be aware that the top bureaucrat in Alberta Health Services — Dr. Stephen Duckett — is going to be speaking in Calgary Nov. 2 on Pandemic Planning. As communications people within organizations, and as communications counsellors to our clients, it might be of interest to get into the room with a lot of people who are as worried and concerned as you are. There should be a real buzz in the room.

PANDEMIC PLANNING: Everyone’s Business

Dr. Duckett is Alberta’s new man on the front lines of health care delivery, managing huge health expenditures and pressure to build a more efficient system. At the same time, he is preparing Albertans for a possible H1N1 pandemic this winter. Is your business ready? Find out what you can expect and what you should be doing today.

Dr. Duckett has spent more than 35 years in health care. Formerly Chief Executive Officer for Healthcare Improvement in Queensland, Australia, Dr. Duckett’s experience includes ten years as a professor at La Trobe University in Melbourne, and two years as Deputy Minister to the Australian Department of Human Services and Health. Dr. Duckett has a PhD in Health Administration.
