Interprofessional Education (IPE) Workshop in Edmonton at CCME 2009
CAME in collaboration with the AFMC and CIHC (Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative) are planning an IPE Workshop to take place in Edmonton, on Wednesday,
May 6. This post-conference workshop will provide a variety of learning opportunities for educators involved in interprofessional education (IPE). Small group and
panel discussions will cover several aspects of IPE including experiences in working with other academic partners to design, implement and evaluate IPE, as well as
strategies to promote and foster IPE.
Registration for this workshop is available through the CCME website (www.mededconference.ca). A $90
registration fee covers costs for the full day workshop, including lunch. Confirmed speakers for this workshop include Jenn Fookes, Scott Reeves, Heather Dean,
Ruby Gryenmore, Dianne Delva and Liz Harrison.
We encourage you to register for this workshop and to promote the workshop internally to IPE champions within your faculty and institution.
The Board of Directors of the Canadian Association for Medical Education, in a recent vote, has endorsed in principle the AAMC document, 'Industry
funding of medical education'. Acknowledging the dynamic, complex and important relationship between industry and academic medicine, the CAME Board of
Directors recommends further work in adapting the recommendations of the report to the Canadian context and calls for continued collaboration between
academic institutions and governments to further develop sustained, professionally responsible funding models for the delivery and advancement of all
aspects of medical education.
CAME is a grass-roots organization for medical educators by medical educators. Our goal is to promote excellence and
scholarship in all aspects of medical education by advocating for medical education and medical educators, by supporting faculty and educational
development, and by encouraging research in medical education through networking and scientific activities.
