An international congress
linking CME and CPD to health outcomes
May 16-19, 2004 - Toronto
The Fairmont Royal York Hotel
Welcome to the website of the CME Congress 2004 – these pages describe a very special event, co-sponsored by several American, Canadian and international organizations and hosted by the University of Toronto.
The Congress is expected to highlight groundbreaking initiatives in the broad field of 'knowledge translation'. This site provides an introduction to the 'Congress', a unique opportunity to share with colleagues providing leadership in this area. We are pleased that you found us, and –even more – hope that you will be able to join us in Toronto in May of 2004.

size, scope, format of the meeting
We are estimating 500 participants in the Congress, many of whom will be from North America, with colleagues from Europe, Australia, Latin America and elsewhere.
While there will be a number of plenary sessions we are hopeful that others will take part as workshop leaders, small group leads, and in other ways. We expect that most participants will take part in poster demonstrations, and act as abstract presenters and in research symposia as moderators, panelists, discussants, and in other roles.
We will attempt to ensure that graduate students, invited guests, association members and others will play as large a role as possible in each of these areas. In particular, we are hopeful that communities of learners will take part in the meeting, a process facilitated by extra meeting room space where like-minded or similar groups can meet before and after planned sessions to reflect on their learning and plan future activities.
