Extend your learning, from anywhere
Webinars offer the perfect way to stay current and informed, without having to take time out for travel. And since most of our live webinars take place at 8 pm, you will not have to lose any of your workday. As a Nova Scotian physician, you’ll benefit from an annual series of live, one-hour, Mainpro+ accredited programs. These sessions are designed to help you better understand a variety of highly relevant topics, including:
- Pituitary disease/dysfunction
- Anxiety in children and teens
- Pitfalls in ER: Commonly missed diagnoses
- Assessing decision-making competency in older adults
If you miss a webinar that interests you, it’s easy to catch up. As long as the facilitator gives permission, you’ll find the presentations posted below for up to one month after the original event.
On occasion, we use webinars to pass on important messages from the Department of Health and Wellness. Previous topics have included:
- C. difficile colitis
- Lyme disease
- Management of low back pain
The 2017 Academic year has wrapped up and we're gearing up for the 2018 Academic Year starting in September. Check back for new webinars as they are booked.
The weekly Tuesday "Current Events" email blast wrapped up on June 19, 2018. If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of all our accredited events (starting again in the fall), please fill in this form and get your name on our blast-list!
Have a great summer!
