Getting Practical About Your Practice
Register Now for the 5th Annual Practical Evidence for Informed Practice Conference October 21-22, 2016 | DoubleTree by Hilton | Edmonton, AB
About the Conference
The annual Practical Evidence for Informed Practice (PEIP) conference brings together clinical leaders to speak on the latest findings that can affect your practice and how you treat your patients. This multidisciplinary event focuses on relevant, evidence-based, and thought-provoking topics in health care.
PEIP is applicable to a variety of disciplines, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health care providers, and highlights focused reviews that combine evidence, experience, and patient values!
This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Alberta Chapter for up to 12.75 Mainpro+ credits.
Mainpro+ certification for the PEIP conference includes regular programming and the pilot pre-conference workshop, The Force Awakens (additional fee and limited seating applies.)
No travel, no accommodations, same great learning! New to PEIP 2016 is the addition of a Live Webcast option.
The ever-popular PEIP conference is now available through a live and synchronous Webcast. The ACFP’s PEIP conference has grown exponentially since its modest inaugural meeting five years ago and instead of being confined to the physical limitations of a venue, the ACFP is pleased to bring PEIP live through the Web. Attendees will be able to send in their questions in real time via our online moderators. If you wish to attend the conference from the comfort of your own home (or clinic), our Webcast option is for you. Webcast attendees will be sent sign-in information prior to the conference.
We’ve consulted with our Live Web producer and have provided a list of system requirements. Take a moment to review these so you are not disappointed the day of the conference. The last thing we want is for you to feel frustrated with the technology.
Group Learning – Webcasting for three or more
Pipe PEIP through its Live Webcast feed right into your clinic. Book a boardroom and share the cost savings for an in-clinic group learning experience.
How It Works
Attendees register to the PEIP conference through our online registration site as per usual. On the registration site, you will be required to select your registration type. Select the Live Webcast option. Once Webcast details are finalized for the conference, you will be sent log-in credentials and specifications to access the Webcast closer to the event date.
Bonus Archive Access
The live Webcast of the PEIP conference will automatically be archived and accessible to PEIP attendees (in-person and webcast registrants) after the conference.
Registration is only be available online. To ensure the comfort of all attendees, PEIP registration is limited. In the event of a sell-out, a registration waitlist is available for those still interested in attending PEIP. Individuals may register for Live Webcast without losing their place on the waitlist and, if a conference seat becomes available, the Webcast registration fee will be applied to the full conference fee.
On-site registrations are not permitted.
