Jeremiah Hurley, associate director of CHEPA will be delivering the Canadian Health Care Series lecture on Dec. 10, entitled Public vs. Private Health Care Financing: An International Perspective.
With Canadians engaged in much debate about the roles of public and private financing in health care, the lecture will present a framework for thinking about the two roles of health care finance, drawing on the designs of international health systems.
The lecture to be held in HSC-1A6 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. has been organized by the CLARITY research group, which works towards clinical advances through research and information translation. All are welcome to attend.
Hurley is a professor in the Department of Economics and an associate member of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. His research interests include public and private roles in health care financing, funding models for home care and community-based services and normative economic analysis in the health sector.
