About the Conference

The AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference provides an interactive venue where experts in the fields of diagnostic microbiology, antimicrobial stewardship, infectious diseases, infection prevention and control, and public health meet. The conference attracts attendees from across Canada and internationally. As in previous years, the 2024 conference will provide updates on a variety of relevant topics to a diverse audience of clinicians, microbiologists, laboratory technologists, public health professionals, infection prevention and control practitioners, students, and residents. This year, the conference will be held in-person in Vancouver. In addition to the pre-meeting Trainees’ Day, the conference program will offer plenary sessions, state of the art clinical lectures, accredited co-developed educational activities, short oral presentations, poster presentations, case report symposium and an exhibit hall. The meeting will be a chance for attendees to showcase their research, as well as get up to speed with the latest in the areas of microbiology, infection control, adult and paediatric infectious diseases and related subjects. In addition to the scientific component, the meeting will provide opportunity for attendees to network, exchange ideas, and reconnect with colleagues!

Accreditation and CanMEDS

The AMMI Canada Continuing Professional Development committee chair, Dr. Glenn Patriquin, is responsible for ensuring that the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference is compliant with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons national standard of support of accredited CPD activities.

For specialists certified with the Royal College of physicians and surgeons of Canada: the AMMI Canada – CACMID annual conference is an accredited group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the maintenance of certification program of the Royal College of physicians and surgeons of Canada and approved by AMMI Canada. You may claim a maximum of 24.5 CME credits. Please use the following link to claim your CME hours. If you require a hard copy form, please visit the registration desk.

  1. MAINPORT – Transfer of hours
    In prior years, Group Learning Activities such as conferences were transferred directly into participants’ MAINPORT ePortfolio. This functionality has been discontinued by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, so we ask that you please submit your conference activity hours manually into your MAINPORT ePortfolio.
  2. For specialists certified with the American Medical Association (AMA): through an arrangement between the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the American Medical Association physicians may convert Royal College MOC credits to AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Information on the process to converting Royal College MOC credits to AMA credits can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applications.
  3. For fellows and specialists of the Canadian College of Microbiologists and diplomats of the American Board of Medical Microbiology the Canadian College of Microbiologist: The Canadian College of Microbiologists (CCM) accredits the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference for CE credits. Certificates of continuing education activity are available through the CCM for documentation of attendance and maintenance of certification. A one-hour educational activity is equivalent to one CE credit. Program evaluation forms and record of CE activity can be obtained, in returned once completed by e-mail to the FCCM co-chair Heather Adam (hadam@shared-healthmb.ca) following the conference.

Certificates of Attendance

Certificates of Attendance will be sent to all registered delegates following the conference.

CanMEDS

CanMEDS is the framework that identifies and describes the abilities physicians require to effectively meet the health care needs of the people they serve. These abilities are grouped thematically under seven rules. A competent physician seamlessly integrates the competencies of all seven CanMEDS roles. CanMEDS roles have been identified for each session taking place during the annual conference.
