The System Awakens: Building Learning Healthcare Systems in Canada
March 8, 2018 - March 9, 2018
For three decades, UBC’s Centre for Health Services and Policy Research (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 health care system. In a learning health care 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 health care systems and facilitate conversations on how British Columbia can adopt the principles and actions that define such systems.
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.
