Canadian Health Economics Research Association

Broadening the Mandate of CHERA/ACRES to CAHSPR/ACRSPS


Background: The health care landscape in Canada has undergone dramatic transformations in the past decade, with important implications for research and decision-making in health services, health economics, and health policy domains.

There has been a growing need for a national broad-based interdisciplinary health services and policy research association to support practitioners, users and students of health research to enhance their research capacity and professional development. In response to this, a new membership-based health services association is launched.

The new Association called the Health Research / Association canadienne pour la recherche sur les services et les politiques de la santé (CAHSPR/ACRSPS), will replace the Canadian Health Economics Research Association/ Association Canadienne pour la Recherche en Économie de la Santé (CHERA/ACRES). The aim will be to enhance research capacity within both the researcher and "research user" communities.
