The Centre for Healthcare Innovation is hosting a Grand Round featuring Keir Johnson:

What the Federal and Upcoming Provincial Elections could Mean for Health Research and Health Innovation

Where: Room 264, Apotex Centre, 750 McDermot Ave

When: December 2, 2015
          12pm- 1pm

About the Presentation:

A new federal government was elected recently with many commitments related to health, research and science. And a provincial election is just around the corner with an outcome that is difficult to predict. What might these elections mean for health research and health innovation in Manitoba? What challenges might they pose and what opportunities could arise?

This CHI Grand Rounds presentation will look at the possibilities, using a mix of evidence, policy analysis methods and a healthy dose of speculation, followed by a discussion about how Manitoba could be positioned for success in months and years ahead.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will have a better understanding of:
1.The new federal government’s health and research agenda
2.What to watch for in the upcoming provincial election and the impact the election’s outcome could have on health care and research
3.What challenges and opportunities the federal and provincial elections could offer to Manitoba’s health care and research sectors
4.How you and the CHI can help position Manitoba to take advantage of emerging opportunities

About Keir Johnson:
Keir spent eight years working as the senior health policy advisor with the Manitoba government after working for several years with the WRHA’s Research and Evaluation Unit and Home Care Program. He returned to WRHA earlier this year and now works as a Research Associate with the Centre for Healthcare Innovation’s Evaluation Platform. His undergraduate and graduate studies specialized in political science and health policy research at the University of Manitoba. His thesis research used qualitative and quantitative methods to measure patient safety in home care.
