‘Performance Anxiety: Can performance measurement and reporting help improve Canadian healthcare?’

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Why does performance measurement matter?

Performance measurement is used for a variety of purposes, and generally enables health care professionals, researchers, policy makers and the broader health system make better decisions that improve quality of care. In Canada, multiple jurisdictions have implemented and are expanding their use of performance measurement and reporting activities. This webinar will uncover promising approaches and tools to improve healthcare performance measurement and reporting across Canada. Further, we’ll review how much progress has really been made to date, and how to leverage current knowledge and expertise in this area to maximize our efforts.

This webinar features research that was presented at the 2014 CHSPR Conference on Performance Measurement Anxiety, which was cosponsored by CIHR-IHSPR and CIHR-IPPH.
