Managing a Canadian Healthcare Strategy is the third in a series of three focused annual conferences, presented by Queen’s University, to initiate transformational change in Canadian healthcare.
Crafting a national strategy for Canada’s complex, multi-jurisdictional system requires a multi-faceted perspective, clarity, and a desire among our leadership to collaborate, and the will to act.
Each conference draws approximately 150 senior-level participants from healthcare, government, academe and business. Nearly 4 in 10 attendees have been panelists or keynote speakers; participants have engaged with executives, government and thought leaders from eight nations germane to Canada’s system.
Augmenting these international perspectives on system change are thematic panels (e.g., pharmacare, health human resources, electronic health records, integrated care) and conversations with Canadian thought leaders.

The conference will address the question:
How should we manage and measure a pan-Canadian Healthcare Strategy?
The first conference in June 2013, Toward a Canadian Healthcare Strategy, explored the extent of existing high-level consensus. We found much agreement and we now move on to deal with different models that could form the overall shape and content of a strategic framework.
The second conference, Creating Strategic Change in Canadian Healthcare, generated constructive debate and discussion, not only about the form and substance of a pan-Canadian strategy, but also identified inclusive and collaborative ways for implementation.
Managing a Canadian Healthcare Strategy builds upon the previous two conferences by charting the change processes and performance measures and performance measures to initiate and sustain a cohesive national healthcare strategy.
