CAPHC has responded to feedback from participants and embraced “Fresh Thinking” and “Brave Ideas” in the design of this year’s event, including: 

  • More choice: The conference has added four concurrent sessions to ensure content that is relevant to your practice setting or passion. There are also new pre-conference workshops delegates can choose (registration is limited!).
  • Greater applicability: A new session on our main stage (“What Changed My Practice” ) will feature a series of front line practitioners sharing innovative solutions to common challenges. 
  • More networking: Intentional and informal opportunities to connect with your peers coast to coast. 
  • More evidence: The 2018 poster fair has a new focus. Posters will feature scientific and quality improvement projects with realized outcomes, as well as demonstration projects which show off unique programs, interventions or initiatives. 
  • A tighter agenda: Opening Ceremonies will take place Sunday, October 21 at lunch; The conference will conclude at noon on Tuesday, October 23 so that you make the most of your time in Edmonton and get home sooner.
