The Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations (ACAHO) is encouraged to see that Budget 2013 clearly identifies the potential of world-class research and innovation as a key driver of Canada's long-term prosperity and overall quality of life.
ABC's of AFPs
Recently, ACAHO received a request for information on the status of Alternative Funding Plans in Canadian Academic Health Science Centres. With this in mind, we surveyed members to develop a clearer understanding by asking the following three questions: 1) Do AFPs exist within your Teaching Hospital or Regional Health Authority? 2) If an AFP exists within your Teaching Hospital or Regional Health Authority, which departments or specialties are involved? and, 3) Has a formal evaluation been undertaken to measure the impact of AFPs in your Teaching Hospital or Regional Health Authority? If yes, what were the key findings of the evaluation?
