Pre-Conference Day – Monday, May 25, 2015

Hotel Bonaventure Montreal (formerly Hilton Bonaventure)
900 de La Gauchetiere W., Montreal, QC‎. 

At the 2015 Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) conference the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (CIHR-IHSPR) and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) are pleased to host a new workshop on The Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey (IHP).

The 2014 IHP included patients age 55 and older from 11 countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. More than 5,300 Canadians completed the survey and CIHR-IHSPR and CIHI have collaborated to produce a document comparing Canada's performance.

The companion report, How Canada Compares, provides provincial-level results as well as new analysis to highlight where Canadian results are significantly different from the international average.

This pre-conference workshop is intended for graduate and postdoctoral students, new investigators and policy makers who are interested in learning more about the IHP and how to access and use the data to better understand health systems around the world.

In addition to CIHI and CIHR-IHSPR experts, this session will feature:

  • Michelle Doty (The Commonwealth Fund, US)
  • Susan Brien (Health Quality Ontario)
  • Jean-Frédéric Lévesque (Bureau for Health Information, New South Wales, Australia)
  • Mike Benigeri (Health and Welfare Commissioner of Quebec)

Our experts will provide an orientation to the IHP Survey and the data collected, describe previous analyses and published results, and give workshop participants the opportunity to use a sample dataset. This workshop will be an excellent opportunity for participants to learn how to use the data to answer questions about health care systems in Canada and other comparator countries.
