You’re invited to attend March CIHR-IHSPR Strategic Planning Engagement Sessions

19 February 2020

This March, the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (CIHR-IHSPR), in partnership with MSFHR and the BC AHSN, is bringing BC stakeholder groups together to provide input into their five-year strategic plan. Register now to attend and have your say.

CIHR-IHSPR is seeking to include opportunities to engage researchers, trainees, decision-makers and other stakeholders within the health services and policy research community, as well as to have patients and the public to provide input on their opinions about the current needs, gaps, and opportunities for health services and policy research.

This input will help them to determine strategic directions and research priorities that will support the health services and policy research community to tackle the most serious challenges facing our health care system.
