PEIP Planning Committee

Getting Practical for Better Practice

The Practical Evidence for Informed Practice (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.

For 10 years, the PEIP Committee has worked hard to ensure ACFP’s popular evidence-based event is immediately applicable 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.


  • 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
  • Raise awareness for the evidence-based discipline of practice and research
  • Help promote the Conference through your personal and/or professional networks

About the Committee

This Committee is comprised of interdisciplinary primary care providers to ensure that CPD needs of the ACFP’s membership across the province are met. Professionals are solicited and are selected based on excellence in practice and/or academia.
