Canadian Evaluation Society 2017 Conference

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) 2017 Conference, to be held in Vancouver, will focus on innovation, action, and reflection. The latest methods and approaches evaluators are applying in a wide range of contexts will be explored, including the ways in which evaluators are incorporating reflection into practice.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Facing Forward: Innovation, Action, and Reflection”, a theme meant to engage both internal and external evaluators in exploring the different ways to think about their role and how they conduct evaluations. The new and emerging demands faced by evaluators in an era of social media, economic challenges, systems thinking, globalization, and other emerging trends will be discussed.

For information about the keynote speakers and plenary panelists, please visit the CES 2017 website. CHÉOS is a Silver Sponsor of this year’s event.

Work in Progress Seminar: Can We Predict the Future? The Perils of Prognostication in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Resuscitations
Mar 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Brian Grunau, MD, M.HSc.
Scientist, CHÉOS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, UBC

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitations are common within our healthcare system, however robust data or guidelines to inform decisions of prognostication are lacking. The BC Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium maintains a registry of consecutive out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in BC’s urban settings. Dr. Grunau will report characteristics and outcomes of our local resuscitations, highlighting biases introduced by intra-arrest prognostication and providing insights into optimal strategies for decisions of withdrawal of care.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects.
