CAHSPR Newsletters



March 2013



President’s Message
 

As I mentioned in January, we’ve been actively encouraging the creation of theme groups within CAHSPR that will attract new people and increase our inter-disciplinary networking, linkage and exchange. Theme groups create a forum where researchers and practitioners – whether system decision-makers, clinicians or policy- makers – can engage in more in-depth discussions and connections within a specific area of focus. Several theme groups are in the process of getting established and will hold meetings and events at this year’s annual conference.
 
CAHSPR’s Mental Health Theme Group, Primary Healthcare Theme Group, and the Student Working Group were launched in 2010. Over the past 3 years they’ve facilitated focused engagement of like-minded individuals from across the country through regular teleconferences and annual business meetings and have organized and hosted conference-related activities such as sub-plenary sessions, workshops and social events. Since these three were created, four additional Theme Groups have been created, one called Collaborative Healthcare Improvement Partnerships (CHIPs) that will focus on implementation science; one on “Kids” that will focus on health services for maternal, child and youth populations; one on Applied Research in Cancer Care; and one on Health Human Resources.
 
Keep your eyes open for the conference program – due out shortly – that will provide details on the events to be presented by the theme groups during the conference, starting with pre-conference events on Monday May 27th and be sure to get involved if you’re interested. We’re eager to create the space where keen minds can meet.
 
I’ll have lots more about the conference in my next message.

What will it take to achieve the Triple Aim in Canadian health care?  Can we simultaneously increase population health and improve the patient and provider experience while constraining cost growth?  The conference provides an opportunity to learn from improvement initiatives in Canada and other jurisdictions, to identify the factors necessary to drive improvements across the Canadian health system, and to explore what it means to pursue the triple aim within the promise of universal access.

Awards / Occasion de prix

Commonwealth Fund


Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice
Application Deadline: March 11, 2013


The Commonwealth Fund invites promising mid-career professionals—academic researchers, clinicians, managers, government policymakers, and journalists—from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, to apply for a unique opportunity to spend up to 12 months in the United States as a Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice. Fellows work with leading U.S. experts to study a critical issue on the health policy agenda in both the U.S. and their home country. A rich program of seminars organized by the Fund throughout the year further enhances the fellowship experience (described in the Fellowship Seminars section.)

Fellows can expect to gain an in-depth understanding of the U.S. health care system and policy challenges, enhance their methodological skills, and develop valuable contacts and opportunities for ongoing cross-national exchange and collaboration.
In addition to the opportunity to conduct a research study in the U.S., the Harkness Fellowships provide space to think and reflect without the pressures of day-to-day job responsibilities.

Building on their fellowship experiences, Harkness Fellows have moved into prominent positions within academia, government, and health care delivery organizations, making valuable contributions to health policy and practice at home and in the United States. Harkness Fellows also become part of a strong international network of health policy researchers and practitioners, developing important contacts for ongoing international exchange and collaboration.

Fellowships provide up to U.S. $119,000 for terms up to 12 months, with a minimum stay of ten months in the United States required. Individually tailored, the fellowships allow flexibility to accommodate professional commitments and personal circumstances. A peer-reviewed journal article or policy report is the anticipated product of each project.

Applicants must demonstrate a strong interest in health policy issues and submit a formal application that includes a research proposal which falls within the scope of The Commonwealth Fund's goals to promote a high-performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society's most vulnerable, including low-income people, the uninsured, minority Americans, young children, and elderly adults.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Deadline for 2013-14 Canadian applicants has been extended - applications are due March 11, 2013. Applications for 2013-14 Harkness Fellowships from all other countries are now closed.

Deadlines for 2014-15 will be posted shortly.

Up to 16 Fellows are selected annually, typically three from Australia and New Zealand, three from Germany, two from the Netherlands, one from Norway, one from Sweden, one from Switzerland, one from Canada, and four from the United Kingdom.

Once selected, the Commonwealth Fund will assist Fellows in developing and shaping their research proposals. The Fund will introduce Fellows to U.S. policy experts, with whom they will be encouraged to discuss their projects to gain further feedback. Through its extensive network of contacts, the Fund will help identify and place Fellows with mentors who are experts in the policy areas to be studied. In the United States, the Fund will place each Fellow with a mentor who is based at a university, think tank, health care organization, or government agency. Mentors supervise Fellows' research, provide technical expertise and guidance, and facilitate access to data, colleagues, and organizations.

The 2013-14 Harkness Fellows in Health Care Policy and Practice will arrive in the United States from August to September 2013. During their stay in the United States, Fellows identify and collect data, conduct site visits or interviews, and meet with experts, as they undertake a substantiative research study addressing critical issues of policy and practice relative to the U.S. and their home country.
Fellows present project findings at a final reporting seminar in June 2014. The expected product is a peer-reviewed journal article or report for Health Ministers and other high-level policy audiences. Harkness Fellows publish their project findings in leading journals (such as the BMJ, Canadian Medical Association Journal, Health Affairs, Journal of the American Medical Association, Medical Journal of Australia, New England Journal of Medicine, and New Zealand Medical Journal).

The successful applicant will also have an excellent teaching record and a willingness to undertake PhD supervision. 

The Chair will hold a full-time appointment (at the Assistant or Associate Professor level) in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CE&B) with opportunities for cross-appointments with other University departments. The Chair will also be a member of the Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis (CHEPA), a world leader in the production and dissemination of knowledge about the determinants of health, values related to health and the health-care system, and health system performance, and will contribute to the Health Policy PhD program (http://fhs.mcmaster.ca/hpphd/). The faculty appointment is secured by an endowment jointly funded by CHEPA, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University.
