He was elected the Association�s inaugural President of CAHSPR in 2003.

Dr. Coyte was awarded a CHSRF/CIHR Health Services Chair in 2000 for ten-years and he has been the Director of CIHR�s Strategic Research and Training Program in Health Care, Technology, and Place since 2002. These awards emphasize research and training and have attracted significant multi-year financial commitments. In these roles, he cultivates mentoring networks for junior researchers and senior faculty, and fosters knowledge translation relationships with government, industry, and health care stakeholders. In recognition of these contributions to health services and policy research, Dr. Coyte was awarded the Health Services Research Advancement Award in 2010 from the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation (CHSRF).

She has worked extensively with Prof Sheila Payne, President of the EAPC, as a senior researcher on the EU funded EURO IMPACT project based at the International Observatory on End of Life Care in Lancaster University. Also she recently was involved in the mapping of all Pediatric Palliative Care Services in Europe. Results of both studies have either been/ are being published and will definitely benefit professionals managing patients in the last years of life, and who require specialized pain and symptom management. As an individual, Ebun is focused, resilient, brave, honest, open, and able to listen, reflect and learn. As a member of a team, she is reliable, responsible, and resourceful.

Elene Janberidze has graduated medical college in 2001 with the degree of doctor’s assistant and medical faculty of medical institute “Clinicus” in 2006 with the degree of M.D in Tbilisi, Georgia. Dr. Janberidze has been trained by End-of-life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) with International Curriculum . Train program for nurses in Salzburg, Austriaand started working as a coordinator ofNursing Palliative Care Educational Program (2007-2008). She became a member of Georgian National Palliative Care Association and a research officer at the department of Gerontology and Palliative Care, Alexandre Natishvili Institute of Morphology (2009-2011). She was actively involved in elaboration of amendments in legislations regulating Gerontological Services and Palliative Care. In 2011 she wasawarded a Marie Curie research training fellowship in European Union 7th Framework Programme funded project EURO IMPACT (European Intersectorial and Multidisciplinary Palliative Care Research Training) with the main aims within the work package to study a variety of outcome assessment scales to monitor and improve palliative care and how they benefit patient and family care.The primary aim of the project was to monitor and improve palliative care in Europe. At the moment she is based as a PhD candidate at the European Palliative Care Research Centre (PRC), Department of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway with the PhD topic ‘Depression and depressive symptoms in patients with advanced cancer – classification, assessment and treatment’. She was seconded at EMGO Institute for Health and Care Research, Expertise Center of Palliative Care, Department of Public and Occupational Health, VU Medical Center in Amsterdam for six months. Her interests are mainly in palliative care, advanced cancer patients, symptom management, outcossessment, major depressive disorder, and depressive symptoms.

Biography

I was born in 1981 in Valença, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I lived in this city during 17 years, then I moved to Minas Gerais ( Federal University of Viçosa) where I got my bachelor in Human Nutrition ( I finished it in 2004). I worked for 5 years (from 2005 to 2010) in a State company with nutrition and how to use the most of food for the population of the rural environment. I started my Master´s course in 2010 in State University of Rio de Janeiro, in which I studied “Food intake and prevalence of inadequate nutrient intake among pregnant, lactating and reproductive-age women in Brazil”. I had the opportunity to get experience with food consumption and public health studies. In 2013 I started my PhD course and my research project is entitled “Simulation of food scenarios for reducing the prevalence of inadequate nutrient intake in Brazil”, in which I am studying how to reduce the inadequacy of nutrients through the best combination of food. I also had the opportunity to publish 2 papers about folic acid supplementation in reproductive-age women and an analysis of flour fortification Program in Brazil. Nowadays, I’m in Aalborg University, campus Copenhagen in a PhD internship, involved in a project about nudging and coffee consumption; being the supervisor of 5 master´s students and teaching the Statistic’s course.

Biography

Rose Wilson is currently conducting a PhD in vaccine coverage among pregnant women of ethnic minorities in Hackney, London within the Vaccine Confidence Project in the faculty of Epidemiology and Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has worked closely with the World Health Organisation (WHO) to conduct a systematic review on vaccine hesitancy for the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE). This lead to the co-authorship of a technical report on vaccine hesitancy and two articles: Strategies for addressing vaccine hesitancy-a systematic review and Measuring vaccine hesitancy: the development of a survey tool (Vaccine). She is also lead author of Tracking the global spread of vaccine sentiments: The global response to Japan's withdrawal of their HPV vaccine recommendation, (Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics) and Understanding factors influencing vaccination acceptance during pregnancy globally: A literature review (Vaccine), as well as the technical reports, The HPV vaccination in Japan: Issues and options and HPV Vaccination in Japan: The Continuing Debate and Global Impacts, both commissioned by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The reports offer advice to the Japanese government on how to overcome vaccine hesitancy surrounding the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. 

Rose's area of expertise is medical anthropology and public health. She is fluent in English (ILR Level 5) and speaks French (ILR Level 3).
