Mission

To develop the Centre into a centre of excellence in the studies of ageing, healthcare management and policies.

Background

The Centre for Ageing and Healthcare Management Research (CAHMR) was first set up with a fund from the Research Grants Council of University Grants Committee (Project No.: UGC/IDS24/18) on 1 December 2018 and was inaugurated on 14 January 2019. The funding was completed on 31 May 2022 and CAHMR continues to operate by internal funding from the College of Professional and Continuing Education of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

To respond to the challenge of ageing population, CAHMR aims to leveraging 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.

Specific deliverables include an efficient research infrastructure, regular network building conferences, impactful publications, relevant curriculum, and stakeholder dialogues, with the four fundamental objectives:
(1) To generate novel and useful knowledge;
(2) To develop research capabilities of faculty members;
(3) To share insights with stakeholders; and
(4) To inform curriculum development across related academic programmes.
