Health care decision-makers in Canada operate in an increasingly complex environment that has steadily intensified the challenge of adding value to the system, while managing overall health care costs. As policy-makers, planners, and health care professionals look for ways to bend the health care cost curve, the need for credible, independent, evidence-based information could not be greater. The 2012 CADTH Symposium will present innovative approaches and success stories that show how evidence use is supporting the optimal use of drugs and technologies, increasing the efficiency of health service delivery, and delivering impacts that strengthen patient outcomes and health system sustainability. Today, more than ever, evidence matters.

CHSRF Sessions:
