50 Years: MHA Program

May 3, 2014
Fairmont Château Laurier Hotel, Ottawa, ON

Join us, as we travel through time and celebrate the success of the past 50 years and inspire the future of the MHA program at the University of Ottawa, Telfer School of Management.

Now you can go back!

In 2014, the school will be celebrating 50 years since the inception of the program. So many of our graduates have risen to senior positions in hospitals, community-based agencies, government departments, associations and organizations. And to be honest it’s hard to imagine where Canada’s healthcare industry would be today without the Telfer MHA program. It’s been a vital part of this country’s health-care community. The mentoring and engagement of alumni with current students year after year is a big part of what keeps the Canadian Health Care system evolving and moving ahead.

The celebration weekend will include several great events. Saturday morning alumni will be given the opportunity to attend one or two professional development sessions. In the evening the alumni association will host a Gala dinner at the Fairmont Château Laurier for all alumni, faculty - past and present, and all preceptors and professionals from the health care community who have shared a connection with the school over the past 50 years. There may also be other events organized during the weekend, however we are still in the development stages of the full program.

This will be an outstanding event. Telfer provides a wonderfully diverse and vibrant environment where students, faculty, researchers and alumni forge rewarding lifelong relationships. This event will strengthen those connections for many more years to come and create many new ones.

Creating Strategic Change in Canadian Healthcare

May 15 - 16, 2014
Sheraton Centre, Toronto, ON

Presented by Queen's University, Creating Strategic Change in Canadian Healthcare is the second in a series of three focused annual conferences aimed at transformational change in Canadian healthcare. In the Canadian multi-jurisdictional context, developing a strategy together requires a broad perspective, clarity, collaboration and a desire to act.

This action-oriented event addresses three vital questions:
1.    What form could a Canadian healthcare strategy take?
2.    How could the provinces and territories come together to achieve a uniquely Canadian strategy model around four key issues: health human resources, integrated care, electronic health records, and pharmacare?
3.    What is a viable process for change?

The conference draws together senior Canadian healthcare leaders with change agents from around the world to discuss tangible ways forward for healthcare reform in Canada.  A collaborative approach, integrating policymakers, healthcare delivery, academic research, and business, will generate implantation-focused solutions.  A range of international perspectives will inform the conversation, allowing for fresh thinking on the complex challenges facing Canadian healthcare.
   
Speakers for Creating Strategic Change in Canadian Healthcare include a wide spectrum of senior thought leaders from across Canada and around the world. International speakers from the OECD, Denmark, Germany, the UK, Australia and more will present alongside executives and CEO's from healthcare associations, governments and the private sector.

Confirmed speakers include:
