2013 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

The PERC 2013 Annual Scientific Meeting was held at the Fairmont Banff Springs in Banff Alberta. The fifth Fellows Education Day was held on the Sunday prior to the research presentations – this day was a great success with distinguished guest speakers Drs. Graham Thompson, Doug Sinclair, Geoffrey Hung, Angelo Mikrogianakis, and a team from MD Management Services. Dr. Lawrence Richer from the University of Alberta presented on REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) an online data management system that is currently being used internationally. The ‘PERCky’ and ‘Acronym Contest’ were back again this year, presented by Roger Zemek during the final presentations on Wednesday evening. TREKK held a network meeting on Tuesday afternoon and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons held their subspecialty meeting on the Saturday prior to PERC.
