Two workshops have been held to date. The first was held in Edmonton on March 10, 2009, and the second one took place in Montréal on May 6, 2009. Each of these workshops brought together 15-20 participants to address three main questions:
1. What is the use of economic evaluations in the promotion of healthy public policies?
2. Does the report by Goldsmith et al. reflect your experience as a public health actor?
3. What are the most important and pressing issues that could benefit from an economic evaluation?
Summaries from each workshop are available here.
Each workshop will lead to a report, produced by Laurie Goldsmith.
The NCCHPP is planning to hold more economic evaluation workshops in other regions of Canada. If you would like to participate in this activity, or if you would like more information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
