Information for Speakers

CAEP sincerely appreciates the contribution of the Track Leadership Team and Conference Speakers in making #CAEP24 successful. We invite speakers to refer to this page as a resource for the conference.

Speakers are those who have been invited by a track chair to give a presentation. If you are an abstract presenter (plenary, lightning oral, moderated poster, and poster) who has been invited to present their research as part of the CAEP24 Abstract Competition, please refer to the Abstract presenter page.


Please do not register for the conference until you receive further instructions from the CAEP Head Office. 

From the #CAEP24 Scientific Planning Committee:


The #CAEP24 Scientific Planning Committee wants you to be aware that, as faculty for the above program, we must ensure that compliancy is met with the National Standard for Support of Accredited CPD Activities (the National Standard).

The following documentation is required from you:

1. CAEP Declaration of Conflict of Interest Form (complete directly in the X-CD Speaker Platform)

2. CAEP 3-slide disclosure (complete directly in the X-CD Speaker Platform)

The Scientific Planning Committee (SPC) will review all disclosed financial relationships and determine whether action is required to manage potential or real conflicts of interest.   Speakers must disclose conflicts verbally and in writing using the 3-slide disclosure at the beginning of their presentation.  Any individual who fails to disclose their relationship(s) as required cannot participate as a member speaker of this certified activity.

3. Learning Objectives

Quick Tips: Writing Learning Objectives 

Why learning objectives are important and how to write them 

List of Verbs for Formulating Educational Objectives

The following is a reminder of the quality criteria framework that is required to meet the certification standards of this 1 credit per hour program:

Quality Criterion 1 – Needs Assessment and Practice Relevance

  • An indirect assessment of target audience needs is used to guide program development and to obtain information on prior knowledge and practice experience
  • Learning objectives are tied to needs assessment results
  • The needs assessment addresses physician competency through CanMEDS-FM Roles

Quality Criterion 2 – Interactivity and Engagement

  • At least 25% of the program is conducted in an interactive manner

Quality Criterion 3 – Incorporation of Evidence

  • An outline of the evidence and how it was used to create the content must be provided and references must be included in provided materials
  • Evidence should come from systematic reviews/meta-analyses of studies (RCTs, cohort studies, case-control studies); single, moderate-size, well-designed RCTs; well-designed, consistent, controlled but not randomized trials; or large cohort studies
  • Any lack of evidence for assertions or recommendations must be acknowledged
  • If a single study is the focus or select studies are omitted, program developers must provide a rationale to support this decision
  • Graphs and charts cannot be altered to highlight one treatment or product
  • Both potential harms and benefits should be discussed; an efficient way to present this to clinicians is the number needed to treat (NNT) and the number needed to harm (NNH), as well as absolute and relative risk reductions

Quality Criterion 4 – Addressing Barriers to Change

  • The educational design includes a discussion of commonly encountered barriers to practice change

Quality Criterion 5 – Evaluation and Outcome Assessment

  • Measures are included to assess self-reported learning or change in what participants know or know how to do as a result of the CPD program

Faculty are responsible for ensuring that their presentations and education materials—and any recommendations—are balanced and reflect the current scientific literature. The only caveat to this guideline is where there is only one treatment or management strategy. Unapproved uses of products or services must be declared in the presentation.

Please find the following links below for your reference and review.  As a speaker, CAEP asks that you be aware of these guidelines and how they affect your responsibility as a speaker:
