ISPOR takes a strategic emphasis on the Society’s impact on healthcare decision-making, therefore learning from the chapters on the ground provides an opportunity for two-way information sharing. Chapters are making a large impact on health policy in their respective countries, and ISPOR is eager to learn about and promote these activities, while also providing appropriate guidance to ensure they are in-line with ISPOR policies and governance practices. The Chapter Leadership Training webinar series offers an excellent platform for chapters to share their experiences and knowledge with other chapters and strengthen their understanding and effective implementation of ISPOR policies and strategic direction.

After attending the webinar, learners should be able to:

  • Build and expand leadership skills of involvement in policy-making process.
  • Learn how to get the chapter involved in health policy and how to engage with stakeholders through real-world examples.
  • Deepen your understanding of the chapter’s importance and its impact on health policy by case-based learning, such as involvement in PE guidelines, stakeholder meetings, comments on policy, etc.

This webinar is open to All ISPOR Members and Non-members.
