About the Conference and CAHMR
This Conference is supported by a funding of HKD2.45 million under the Institutional Development Scheme (IDS) of the Competitive Research Funding Schemes for the Local Self-Financing Degree Sector in 2018/19 of the Research Grants Council (RGC) to establish the Centre for Ageing and Healthcare Management Research (CAHMR) [Ref. no.: UGC/IDS24/18]. The School of Professional Education and Executive Development (SPEED) under CPCE (College of Professional and Continuing Education) is the grantee of this research funding. CAHMR will be inaugurated at the Opening of the Conference.
CAHMR will leverage the expertise and interest among faculty members, connecting them from a diverse array of disciplines and cultivating their scholarship in the realms of health care, health services management, finance, information technology, data science, public policy, marketing and hospitality management. The goal is to develop CAHMR into a centre of excellence with four fundamental objectives:
- generating novel and useful knowledge;
- developing research capabilities of faculty members;
- sharing insights with stakeholders; and
- informing curriculum development across related academic programmes.
