2018 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition Prize Winners

Each year at the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) conference IHSPR sponsors a Student Poster Competition. This competition is designed to encourage graduate students to attend and showcase their work at CAHSPR, Canada's pre-eminent health services and policy research conference, and to recognize the outstanding research efforts of up-and-coming health services and policy researchers.

Prizes are awarded to the three top-ranked posters in the amounts of $1,200, $1,000, and $800, for first, second and third prize respectively. Posters are reviewed by a team of expert reviewers who each devote their time and effort to conducting the reviews.

CAHSPR and IHSPR would like to congratulate the winners of the 2018 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition:

  • First Prize: Sarah Cooper from McGill University for her poster “The Impact of Primary Care on Outcomes in Vulnerable Children: A Population-Based Retrospective Cohort Study in Quebec, Canada.”
  • Second Prize: Sarah Filiatreault from the University of New Brunswick for her poster “Umbrella Review of Hip Fracture Practice Guidelines With a Synthesis of Recommendations for the Pre-Operative Period.”
  • Third Prize: Kyle Kemp from University of Calgary for his poster “Drivers of Experience in the Pediatric Inpatient Setting: Results from the Child HCAHPS Survey.”

Winners are encouraged to use their prize money to further their careers in health services and policy research. Congratulations to our winners and we look forward to seeing you at next year's CAHSPR conference!
