How divergent are cultural perspectives in the healthcare system, and how does this affect both the delivery of medical care by clinicians and the paths toward health and wellbeing for patients? Dr. Simon Kitto, Medical Sociologist, Director of Research in Continuing Professional Development and Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery at the Wilson Centre for the University of Toronto, joins host Alicia Sutton to explore workplace culture from several vantage points, such as professional-to-patient value systems and group behavior dynamics, toward better understanding health outcomes.
