Chief Executive Officer – Centre for Effective Practice

Dawn LiddellOpportunities


The Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) is one of the largest independent healthcare behaviour change partners in Canada. The CEP brings together evidence, expertise and resources to develop and evaluate effective solutions that help clinicians build knowledge and skills to enhance the delivery of high-quality care. With almost 20 years of experience, the CEP has a proven track record of working with interprofessional clinicians, researchers, healthcare consumers and policy makers to improve health outcomes and advance health system priorities.

As a federal not-for-profit organization, the organization’s objective is to identify barriers to optimal practice and produce practical solutions to address these barriers. They achieve this through the development of evidence summaries and clinical toolkits, quality improvement planning, and implementing various knowledge translation interventions including provider education, academic detailing, and integration of evidence into decision support systems. To design and execute effective approaches to improve care, we base our efforts on the highest quality clinical and implementation evidence.
