Getting Practical About Your Practice

Save the Date 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!

The 2016 conference planning is underway and is sure to be an excellent program again this year.

Watch for registration to open in August!
