Our Team

Board of Experts

This strong group of experts is integral to our success. It includes clinicians, researchers, health administrators, knowledge translation experts and system leaders who are committed to implementing best practices in health care.

There is much reference information on many apps - they are far too often American-based. CEP provides local evidence-based information all in one, easy-to-find place. Indeed, it is often provided for several regions (provinces, cities, etc. as the differences are appropriate).
— Dr. Judy Patterson, Family Physician

Clinical Leads

Our clinical leads bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise from various areas in health care. They are recognized leaders in their respective fields.

Staff and Academic Detailers
