2021 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 and post-doctoral fellows 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.

This year was particularly exciting, as students from across the country were able to log-on and present their research to a team of expert reviewers using virtually CAHSPR’s online platform.

CAHSPR and IHSPR would like to congratulate the winners of the 2021 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition:

  • First prize: Margaret Jamieson from the University of Toronto for her poster “Age-period-cohort modeling of primary mental health service provision in BC: a quantitative analysis”.
  • Second prize: Tammy Bui from McGill University for her poster “Describing Healthcare Utilization for Men and Women Living with Dementia in Quebec”.
  • Third prize: Andrea Rochon from Queen’s University for her poster “Characteristics and Outcomes Associated with Opioid Deprescribing in Long-Term Care in Ontario: A Population-Based Cohort Study”.

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!
