The 2011 CACHE/ACEMC Annual Conference will be held in partnership with the National Continuing Competence Conference (NCCC)
at the Fairmont Banff SpringsHotel, Banff, Alberta, Canada, April 14-15.
Conference theme: Evolving Competence For Health Professions
For almost a decade, the annual meeting of the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education (held in various cities in the US) included a “Canada Day” that was developed by and for Canadian CHE professionals. Canadians appreciated the opportunity to learn and grow from other CHE professionals working in a similar environment. The day became so popular that the regular members of the Canadian contingent began to talk about moving “Canada Day” to Canadian soil. Around the same time that this idea was being born, Canadians became acutely aware of the fact that the presenters at the main ACME sessions were predominantly Canadian.
Five years ago, the vision of a Canadian CHE organization was explored at the Canadian Association of Continuing Health Education meeting in Ottawa, Canada. The next year, an annual meeting focusing on Canadian CHE issues and bearing the name CACHE was officially launched.
