Ensuring that the knowledge generated through the work of CHEPA members is effectively communicated to health system decision-makers and other stakeholders is a vital aspect of the organization’s role.
Relevant research in user-friendly formats is important to planners, policy-makers and practitioners at the administrative and clinical level, as well as others working in health systems research.
CHEPA faculty are engaged in a wide range of activities including seminars, workshops and other forums to ensure knowledge of health economics and health policy analysis is generated and conveyed to a broad mix of individuals and organizations at the regional, national and international levels.
John Lavis, Canada Research Chair in Knowledge Transfer and Exchange, oversees CHEPA’s Knowledge Exchange program, which includes various strategies for communicating and sharing information created by or relevant to the goals of CHEPA. These include web-based and print publications, as well as regular seminars.
