PEIP Planning Committee

Getting Practical for Better Practice

The PEIP Conference Planning Committee is a standing committee which plays an integral role in the creation and delivery of an evidence-based, clinically relevant, and thought-provoking continuing professional development (CPD) event on an annual basis.

The planning committee has worked hard to ensure ACFP’s popular evidence-based event is relevant and informative. With each member bringing a unique perspective to the development of the program, PEIP is certain to affect change among various practice settings.


  1. Be available to meet (by teleconference and/or in person, and regularly by email),
  2. Work with ACFP Staff Liaison and Project Team to deliver an annual, certified Group Learning CPD event, including:
    • Identification of topic areas, solicitation of expert speakers, and creation of preliminary learning objectives and session titles,
      • Development of a highly relevant and responsive CPD program that is practical and provides “bottom line” lessons,
  3. Raise awareness for the evidence-based discipline of practice and research,
  4. Help promote the Conference through your personal and/or professional networks.
