UBC CHSPR Annual Health Policy Conference: Medicare at a Crossroads

We’re proud to return as sponsors for CHSPR’s 34th Annual Health Policy Conference on March 31 – April 1, 2022.

It’s the 50th anniversary of medicare in 2022 and a good time to look back and plan for the future. Looking back is imperative, as we remind ourselves about the roots of medicare, the values and design principles that underpinned the establishment of medicare, and the heroic people who really made a difference in getting those foundations in place. It is equally – in fact more – important to plan for the future, as we recognize the challenges that existed prior to the pandemic, and the new ones that have emerged since. We need to confirm the values and objectives that guide us. Aligning with those, we need to determine what should stay the same and what we need to do differently over the next 50 years.

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 2022 conference will bring together research and policy experts, students, patients, and care practitioners from across the health care system. All or almost all speakers will appear virtually, but the conference will support both in-person and virtual attendance for participants, subject to public health restrictions in British Columbia.
