PharmaWhere? Exploring the Future of Drug Coverage in Canada
March 5 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The 36th annual Centre for Health Services and Policy Research (CHSPR) health policy conference will explore the future of drug coverage in Canada at a time of potentially significant policy development. As millions of Canadians cannot afford their prescription drugs, the federal government is in the process of developing new legislation that will enable a more coordinated approach to pharmacare. The conference will survey the history and future of drug coverage, including vital topics such as equity in access to medicines, the history of reform efforts, and the emerging use of real-world evidence. The event will be offered in hybrid format.
CHSPR’s long-standing conference promotes discussion between policy-makers, academics, providers, trainees, patients and national organizations on timely issues shaping health systems in Canada. The 2024 conference will bring together participants from diverse groups and from across the country.
