Mark Rosenberg, professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, will give a conference (which will also be streamed live) entitled "The tragedies of the COVID-19 pandemic: The end of ‘just-in-time’ health care". The event will take place on 23 September at 12 noon at the Centre for Demographic Studies, located on the Bellaterra campus.

Drawing from the management and economic geography literature, Professor Rosenberg's research shows how a ‘just-in-time’ health care system evolved in Canada as the end result of restructuring, whether by design or as an unintended consequence. Using standardized data from 1991 to 2021, the limitations of a just-in-time approach to healthcare are exposed as measured by changing demographic structures, shortages of health care professionals, and reductions in overall hospital capacity.
