Check-In and Check-Up Virtual Webinar Series
The ACFP has created a Webinar series to provide continuing medical education and professional development opportunities for its members. This series is made possible by a Grant for Chapter-led CPD related to COVID-19 by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
7 PM Tuesday, August 25 – Virtual Doctors’ Lounge
This event is for and driven by physician engagement – guided by physician-submitted questions and conversation themes. The ACFP wants to provide a space for you to connect with your colleagues across Alberta—share your frustrations and the silver linings with each other, and insert humour where you can.
The Virtual Doctors’ Lounge is a place for you to make connections and share your stories. At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Compare changes colleagues have made to their clinics since the COVID-19 pandemic, including scheduling, use of PPE and virtual care appointments
- Build relationships through interaction with other physicians across the province of Alberta
- Relate mental health and wellness issues affecting patients and physicians in Alberta
- Apply strategies for maintaining a positive perspective in challenging times
