2010 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

2010 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

The PERC 2010 Annual Scientific Meeting was held Quebec City – attendees were welcomed from coast to coast as well as members of Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN). The second Fellows Education Day was held on the Sunday prior to the research presentations – this day was a great success with distinguished guest speakers Drs. Stephen Treherne, William Craig, Carrol Pitters, Farhan Bhanji, and Janet Nuth from the Canadian Medical Protective Association. Dr. Patrick McGrath from Dalhousie University presented on pediatric pain at the staff research day. The ‘PERCky’ and ‘Acronym Contest’ were back again this year, presented by Sarah Reid at the PERC dinner.
