On November 15 & 16, 2017, the 2nd annual Drug Pricing Policy Summit was held in Toronto, Ontario. The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network, Schizophrenia Society of Ontario, and Save Your Skin Foundation were joined by a number of patient groups, volunteers, panelists and other collaborators.
This year’s Summit built on the inaugural 2016 Summit with updates from across the regulatory, public and private policy environments. In addition, the 2017 Summit presented different views on drug pricing policy in Canada, including perspectives on value-based healthcare with a focus on patient outcomes and putting the patient at the centre of the process. Panelists included leaders in the public and private payer environments, pharmaceutical industry and prescribers.
The 2017 formal event report is available in both English and French.
