WELCOME

The 2016 Annual Conference will be held this May 25 & 26 at Dawson College in Montreal. The theme is: Solid Ground and Shifting Sands: the Balancing Act of Post-Secondary Education Today.  This year, the conference will not only provide the usual  opportunity for networking, but will also accommodate a poster presentation to highlight members’ experience and initiatives in two areas: the use of simulation, and educating in the context of cultural diversity.  Members who wish to present a poster are asked to contact our president, Lynda Kushnir Pekrul.

Last Year’s Annual Conference:

The 2015 Annual Conference was held at the Red River College  in Winnipeg, Manitoba reaffirming the desire of  CAAHP members to network on relevant topics facing Allied Health programs in Canada.

Our thanks go to Mandy Lowe who provided a thought provoking and inspiring talk on Inter-Professional Education (IPE).  Dr Jason Frank gave much appreciated insight into the competency development for the training of physicians at the Royal College (CanMEDS 2015) and mapped the evolution to outcomes based pedagogy.  Both presentations led to active and engaged discussions which are informing the AGM on future conference plans.   These presentations were complemented by a number of panel discussions which have also seeded thoughts for future conferences.  CAAHP thanks our panelists: Kimberley Wheelans, Michale Sondemann, Janet Jamieson, Dr. Lyle Grant, and Dr. Alex Zahavich

CAAHP would also like to thank our host, Louise Gordon and her colleagues Laurie Musick and Bill Younger for making the facilities available and offering a tour of the College.

Information and documents are available in the “Annual Conference” area on the right hand menu.
