Work in Progress Seminar: Dr. David Whitehurst
Feb 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

David Whitehurst, PhD
Assistant Professor, Faculty of Health Sciences, SFU

Economic evaluation provides a framework to inform decisions, and key inputs for any evaluation comprise evidence about the costs and benefits of alternative courses of action. Conventionally, in the context of health care, these inputs focus on costs to the health care system and benefits in terms of care recipients’ health outcomes. This presentation will provide an overview of a growing area of research in the field of economic evaluation, work that challenges the conventions of valuing benefits in terms of health (and only health) and the explicit focus on outcomes experienced by the patient/individual (and only the patient/individual).

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

CHSPR 2018 30th Annual Health Policy Conference
Mar 8 – Mar 9 all-day

For three decades, CHSPR’s annual conference has provided a platform for thought-provoking dialogues on emerging research in the health services and policy domain. In 2018, the conference will address the question of how British Columbia can become a learning healthcare system. In a learning healthcare system, every patient interaction is treated as a learning activity, and the ethos of the system overall is improvement. Speakers will share the latest thinking on learning healthcare systems and facilitate conversations on how British Columbia can adopt the principles and actions that define such systems.

Taking place March 8-9, the key objective of the conference is to bring together researchers, policy-makers, decision-makers, clinicians, students, patient partners, and interested public who would be involved in creating, implementing, and being part of a learning health system.
