2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference

What’s in your Evaluation Toolbox?

Evaluation practice is rapidly evolving and new tools and methods are constantly emerging. What’s a busy evaluator to do? Come learn from your peers!

The 2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC, on Friday, November 30. This conference is about opening up our evaluation toolboxes and sharing with each other what we know and what we’ve learned. The goal is for every attendee to come away from the conference with something new to apply in their work. The conference is an opportunity to strengthen skill sets, build up your network of evaluators, and make new connections. Our focus is on building CESBC’s culture as an innovative and supportive evaluation community.

CHÉOS is a sponsor of CESBC 2018. The conference will be followed by the CESBCY Annual General Meeting (4:30–5:40 PM).

Abstract: Canada has seen extensive reforms and investments in CBPHC totaling over $1billion. This has unleashed a myriad of innovations, only some of which has been evaluated. Understanding which innovations ought to be scaled and spread across jurisdictions or even where practices could improve the quality of care is challenging because of the dearth of information available about primary care. Currently no data exist that would enable a better understanding of which regional features of CBPHC are working and which need reform.

Evidence from the hospital sector indicate that public reporting of performance can influence quality improvement agendas. Public performance reporting has the potential to improve the quality of care, increase accountability, facilitate public participation in health care, impact societal and professional values and direct attention to issues not currently on the policy agenda. While performance reporting in the hospital sector grows, performance reporting in PHC lags behind. The purpose of this session is to describe work being done in Canada to formulate pieces of a primary care learning health system that includes patient reported experiences, impacts and outcomes of care, organizational characteristics and use of electronic medical record data.

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. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

Does the public value targeted sequencing in advanced cancer?

Abstract: Genomic testing technology is rapidly advancing, yet adoption in the health system is not keeping pace. Understanding the relative preferences for various attributes of targeted testing will be useful for determining the value of sequencing approaches, and informing technology adoption decisions. A discrete choice experiment (DCE) was designed to assess the preferences of members of the Australian general public for targeted sequencing in advanced cancer. Tests were specified in terms of five attributes: time to receive the test result; cost of the test; likelihood that the test result will lead to a change in treatment; length of time health care professionals spend describing the test; and type of health care team who explains the test result. Cost, timeliness, expertise/location and likeliness of changing treatment regimes were identified as attributes of genomic sequencing that are most valuable. Ultimately these findings will be compared with the results of an additional DCE conducted amongst patients with advanced cancer who are part of the iPredict study, in which patients actually undergo sequencing. Such a comparison between the preferences of patients and the public is novel, and will be of interest to health technology agencies, many of which seek to include societal preferences rather than patient preferences in decision making.
