The Implementation Committee would like to thank all co-chairs and speakers for their role in making CDDW™ such a success.  Below are some instructions to assist faculty.

All presentations must:

  • be prepared in PowerPoint, widescreen 16:9;
  • begin with a slide disclosing any actual/apparent/potential conflict of interest, or a statement indicating that no relevant financial relationships exist;
  • disclose any discussion of investigative use or off-label application of medicines, medical devices, or procedures;
  • identify any slides you did not prepare yourself, and
  • identify which CanMEDS roles will be covered in the talk (for clinical talks, a requirement of the Royal College)
