Research and Scholarship in CPD:
Unlocking the potential

With our special guests Dr. Tanya Horsley (Royal College) and Dr. Glenn Regehr (Centre for Health Education Scholarship, UBC)

What are the opportunities for us in pursing scholarship in CPD?  What are the structures and partnerships needed to succeed?  How can we meet the CACME expectations (Standard 2.5) in this area?  Please join us for two excellent keynotes and practical discussion on how your unit can move ahead!
