Winter 2014 (Volume 24, Number 4)
News from the Scientific Committee
By Evelyn Sutton, MD, FRCPC
Quebec City was so much fun last time, members told us we had to go there again! Pack your bags, review your French language tapes, and join us from February 4-7, 2015 for state-of-the-art lectures, workshops, and interactive sessions. Translation is the theme in its broadest sense—knowledge translation in research, adult and pediatric clinical care, education, and policy development to name but a few. World-class experts will share their knowledge during the State of the Art address and the Dunlop-Dotteridge lecture, as well as various workshops. This year, we have facilitated a special “Meet the Experts” bazaar where you can discuss clinical questions with these experts.
The format this year will remain similar to past years with a generous mid-day break to allow you to explore beautiful Quebec City; skiers are perfectly located to head to the hills. We will review your evaluations—
if participants prefer more content during the day, we will adjust future meetings accordingly. We will of course have the ever-popular Great Debate (“Be it resolved that pre-arthritis is real and must be treated”), workshops, as well as abstract and poster sessions. New this year is Clinical Pearls and Challenging Cases; see your email inbox for an invitation to submit your clinical pearl or instructive case and have a chance to win an allegedly fabulous prize!
I look forward to seeing you all in beautiful Quebec City!
