Message From the President - June 2017
Tue, 20 Jun 2017
This was not your father’s meeting…. The annual CAP-ACP Meeting in Charlottetown, PEI, is a wrap. Although formal evaluations have yet to be compiled and reviewed, the informal feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Under the leadership of Dr. Marcio Gomes, and following the vision set by the Ad Hoc Annual Meeting Planning Committee, the Annual Meeting Planning Committee has revamped the format of the meeting, integrated the scientific content into distinct learning tracks, and emphasized the Canadian context of the meeting. Canadian Practice Related Topics, General Practice and Subspecialty practice learning tracks provided something of interest for everyone. Daily plenary sessions, a debate between international presidents of pathology organizations, multiple concurrent symposia and workshops, and coordinated networking breaks were other changes implemented this year.

They are based on the latest evidence and take into account other important elements, such as patient preferences and values. In order to improve the quality of the recommendations, the CTFPHC incorporates the views of those who may be affected by the guideline (i.e. stakeholders) by inviting them to review the guideline review and supporting documents. The CTFPHC is currently developing a “Recommendation for Screening on Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in pregnancy” and would like to invite your organization to review the DRAFT guideline.
