Informative, Evidence-based, and Immediately Applicable

Session topics for the PEIP conference are tailored, primarily, from the evaluation feedback received from attendees of the previous year’s event. Topic suggestions are collated and chosen based on frequency of request and often represent common clinical scenarios where new information or an evidence-based review could potentially change practice.

Our objectives are:

  • To raise awareness for the evidence-based discipline of medical practice and research,
  • To present an accessible continuing professional development (CPD) event for family physician members and allied health care professionals regardless of location or limitations,
  • To annually present a dynamic, unique and positively branded CPD event experience.

Planning Committee

The PEIP Planning Committee ensures that all perspectives are considered in the planning process by providing professional guidance, knowledge, and discernment in program and event development.
