The 2019 CADTH Symposium, with the theme “Supporting Health System Transformation,” is a self-accredited Patients Included event. The Symposium includes relevant program content for patients and caregivers. The Patients Included designation demonstrates CADTH’s commitment to incorporating the experience of patients as experts in living with their conditions, while ensuring that they are neither excluded nor exploited at the event.
