Mark your calendars! The early bird registration deadline is approaching on Feb 10th for the 35th Annual UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research (CHSPR) Health Policy Conference – Value Judgements: Focusing on Patients’ Health and Health Care Outcomes. CHSPR’s long-standing conference promotes discussion between policy-makers, academics, providers, patients and national organizations on timely issues shaping health systems in Canada. The 2023 conference will bring together research and policy experts, students, patients, and care practitioners from across the health care system to explore the movement to increase value from health care.
