How Research Informs the Future of the Canadian Health System

CAHSPR has chosen the topic of “How Research Informs the Future of the Canadian Health System” for the 2018 Scientific Conference.

The conference  will ask the question of what Canada’s healthcare system be like in the future, but go on to consider how health services research can change that future. Will our recent efforts at focusing on population health, considering the impact of social determinants of health, targeting vulnerable populations and valuing patient input persist, or will we continue with the practices of the status quo? For whom will the promise of new technologies bring benefit? Will we finally see the digital age which we experience in our every day lives become as pervasive in our healthcare system? Will changes come to the social hierarchy of our healthcare professionals? How will changes in the age and gender of our providers impact our system?

All of us are engaged in research that seeks to answer these and other related questions. Our research results and our ability to communicate them to decision makers will surely play a major role in deciding what our future healthcare system looks like. Or will it?

Join us in Montreal for four exciting days on May 29-31 (the pre-conference activities will be on May 28) to explore these and other themes, catch up with friends and colleagues and make new acquaintances.
