Conducting Comparative Policy Research in the Real World: Lessons from a Cross-Provincial Review of Team Based Primary Health Care
 
Brief Description:
There is surprisingly little fine-grained guidance on conducting policy research, especially within a context of ever shifting politics, priorities and power dynamics. Drs Mallinson and Misfeldt from Workforce Research and Evaluation (Alberta Health Services) will present the findings of comparative policy research on team based primary health care in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In doing so, they will discuss the challenges of conducting comparative policy research in the real world of continuous policy change.
 
Presenter:
Dr Sara Mallinson: Consultant, Workforce Research and Evaluation Alberta Health Services: Sara is a qualitative researcher who has worked on a range of health services and public health research topics in England before joining the team at WRE in 2012
 
Dr Renée Misfeldt: Senior Consultant, Workforce Research and Evaluation, Alberta Health Services: Renee has been with WRE since 2011. Her research focuses on health systems and services redesign, and workforce planning.
