Chair's Message

The Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (HPME) provides scholarly leadership that supports real-world policy- and decision-making.

To that end, one of the main directions included in our 2009-2012 Strategic Plan is developing and supporting collaborative partnerships that bring together people and organizations – in government, business, the non-profit sector, and elsewhere – in the pursuit of health services excellence.

These collaborations are vital to evidence-informed research. By integrating decision-makers in our work, we are able to generate information that gives our partners richer, more complex perspectives on which to base their policies and strategies.

In this issue of In Focus, you will find short profiles of four of HPME’s current research collaborations:

To good health and decision-making,
