This conference was jointly hosted by the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR), Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) and Canadian Health Leadership Network (CHLNet). The program focused on leadership in pursuit of the goals of the Triple Aim, an approach to optimizing health system performance developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).

CFHI has a long tradition of supporting future healthcare leaders through its decade-long EXTRA program for healthcare improvement and recently joined forces with IHI to deliver the Triple Aim framework in Canada, by supporting nine healthcare delivery organizations. CHLNet’s mandate is to advance exemplary health leadership in Canada through the efforts of a network of organizations and leaders. The Health Council of Canada provided generous funding for the conference.
