RESEARCH PRESENTATION Cancer drug reimbursement decisions in Canada Dr. Wiesława D. Wranik Decyzje w sprawie refundacji leków onkologicznych w Kanadzie December 15th, 2016 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Location 418 A (Gmach Główny Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego w Poznaniu) Canada is a federal state with a publicly funded health care system. Drugs are funded by governments only in selected circumstances, for example when they are oncological. The funding decision is made by regional governments, but the review of evidence to support the decisions is a national process undertaken through the pan-Canadian Oncology Drug Review (pCODR). This presentation will: 1. Describe the pCODR process and compare it to a previous regional process; 2. Explore the preferences of the pCODR committee as identified in the publicly available recommendation reports; 3. Explore the impact of patient values on recommendations made by pCODR; The purpose of the presentation is to provide an overview of a research program currently underway in Canada, and to explore potential research collaborations with researchers in Poland and about the Polish drug review process. Dr. Wieslawa D. Wranik is an Associate Professor and the Associate Dean Research at the Faculty of Management at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is appointed to the School of Public Administration and cross-appointed with the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology.
