The ACFP’s annual CPD event began just a year after the Chapter was founded, with an inaugural meeting in Red Deer, Alberta. The conference was moved to Banff, Alberta in 1959 and has since remained. Recognized as Alberta’s premier conference for family physicians,the ASA is Education for Family Docs by Family Docs.
Led by the expert team that brings you Tools for Practice, the Practical Evidence for Informed Practice conference brings together clinical leaders to speak on the latest findings that can affect your practice and how you treat your patients. The multidisciplinary event will focus on relevant, evidence-based, and thought-provoking topics in health care.
The ACFP is a proud sponsor of Tools for Practice. Tools for Practice are biweekly articles that summarize medical evidence on a clinical question. Led and coordinated by Dr. G. Michael (Mike) Allan, Associate Professor in the University of Alberta Department of Family Medicine.
GoMainpro is an online continuing professional development (CPD) offering by the Alberta College of Family Physicians.
