Faculty

The ACPAC program is hosted by the University Health Network in collaboration with Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children and other healthcare institutions. The program is offered at the post-licensure level in association with the Office of Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto and benefits from the expertise of the interprofessional faculty (n=90+) whom practise across a broad base of academic and community-based healthcare institutions in the Greater Toronto Area.
Solid partnerships, both financial and in-kind, have been established for the ACPAC program. Included in and integral to this circle of support is the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care of Ontario, The Arthritis Society (Consumer Advocacy group), academia (CPD, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto), academic healthcare institutions (University Health Network, St. Michael’s Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital, and The Hospital for Sick Children), and industry.

Faculty Disclosure

It is the policy of University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Continuing Professional Development to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its individually accredited or jointly accredited educational programs. Speakers and/or planning committee members, participating in University of Toronto accredited programs, are expected to disclose to the program audience any real or apparent conflict(s) of interest that may have a direct bearing on the subject matter of the continuing education program. This pertains to relationships within the last FIVE (5) years with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, or other corporations whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the presentation topic. The intent of this policy is not to prevent a speaker with a potential conflict of interest from making a presentation. It is merely intended that any potential conflict should be identified openly so that the listeners may form their own judgments about the presentation with the full disclosure of facts. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker’s outside interests may reflect a possible bias in either the exposition or the conclusions presented.
