Healthcare Policy

Healthcare Policy | Politiques de Santé a Canadian, open access, peer-reviewed journal for health services and policy researchers, was launched as a partnership between IHSPR, the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) and Longwoods Publishing.

Healthcare Policy is a key knowledge translation vehicle to stimulate communication and cross-fertilization between researchers and healthcare decision-makers. It has a strong focus on KT and features a wide variety of interdisciplinary articles that inform policy decision-making through research, analysis, debate, and editorial.

IHSPR has supported the establishment of a Canadian health services and policy research journal since the Institute’s inception. Since 2005, Healthcare Policy has endeavoured to support health policy development and decision-making within governance, service delivery, funding and resource allocation.

HealthcarePolicy can be viewed online, including information on indexing or how to submit material. Electronic access to the full journal is free to members of the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research upon publication. Each issue is also made fully open access one year from the publication date.
