Emceed by Andy Greenshaw, Associate Vice President of Research at the University of Alberta, the first session considered the following theme: Paying for What Works—Comparative Effectiveness of Health Technologies and Programs. A variety of perspectives examined established approaches and those under development to compare different technologies, programs, and systems of care.
