Practical Evidence for Informed Practice (PEIP) conference

June 21, 2022

IMPORTANT PEIP ANNOUNCEMENT

The Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) and PEER (Patients, Experience, Evidence, Research), have made a joint decision on the future of the Practical Evidence for Informed Practice (PEIP) conference.

After 10 successful years as co-presenters of the PEIP conference, the ACFP and PEER have made a strategic decision to move away from being co-presenters for the conference, leaving PEER as the sole organization responsible for the delivery of the conference. Together, the ACFP and PEER have delivered practice-changing continuing professional development (CPD) to more than 5,500 family physicians, pharmacists, nurses, residents, and students and are extremely proud of the PEIP conference it created together.

While the ACFP will no longer be involved in the delivery of the PEIP conference, it will remain its biggest supporter and is pleased its members can continue to benefit from one of the leading evidence-based medicine conferences in the country. Stepping away from the delivery of the PEIP conference allows the ACFP to allocate resources to an evolution of programming for its members and PEER more flexibility in its programs’ direction.
