2017 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition Prize Winners

Each year at the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) conference IHSPR sponsors a Student Poster Competition. This competition is designed to encourage graduate students to attend and showcase their work at CAHSPR, Canada's pre-eminent health services and policy research conference, and to recognize the outstanding research efforts of up-and-coming health services and policy researchers.

Prizes are awarded to the three top-ranked posters in the amounts of $1,200, $1,000, and $800, for first, second and third prize respectively. Posters are reviewed by a team of expert reviewers who each devote their time and effort to conducting the reviews.

CAHSPR and IHSPR would like to congratulate the winners of the 2017 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition:

  • First Prize: Daniala Weir from McGill University for her poster “Medications Prescribed, Stopped and Modified at Hospital Discharge and Filled Medications in the Community: Predictors of Failure to Follow in-Hospital Medication Changes 30-days Post Hospital Discharge in Patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions.”
  • Second Prize: Brittany Speller from the University of Toronto for her poster “Development of a Decision Aid for Young Canadians Diagnosed with Breast Cancer who are at Risk of Infertility Following Cancer Treatment.”
  • Third Prize: Aaron Jones from McMaster University for his poster “Longitudinal Construct Validity of the Minimum Data Set Health Status Index (MDS-HSI).”

Winners are encouraged to use their prize money to further their careers in health services and policy research. Congratulations to our winners and we look forward to seeing you at next year's CAHSPR conference!
