What our Partners say

"The CEP's academic detailing service is a very effective way to engage, educate and support those practicing long-term care. Engaging, educating and supporting physicians at a provider level can cause them to integrate best-practices into their care. This way, they are more likely to think creatively about solutions to the challenges ahead of us in long-term care."- Dr. Scott Nash, Medical Director in Long-Term Care
"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the CEP on the development of the Poverty Tool for Primary Care. The organization proved to be fast, efficient, and effective in its approach to assessing need, gathering wide input, design, and informed development of this tool. The final product is unique and cleverly structured, and I am confident in CEP’s ability to effectively bring it into mainstream primary care practice. I would welcome the opportunity to work with the CEP on future projects."- Dr. Gary Bloch, Clinical Lead
"When we made the needs of people with earlier stages of chronic kidney disease a priority at the ORN, we knew we needed to work closely with primary care. As a recognized leader in primary care change management, we immediately turned to the Centre for Effective Practice for help."- Graham Woodward, former Director, Clinical Programs, CCO/ORN
"I’ve had excellent experiences working with the dedicated, knowledgeable people/staff at CEP, who are committed to the development of evidenced-based tools for primary care providers that will directly impact clinical practice."- Dr. Deanna Telner, Clinical Lead
