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
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support from the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness for our webinar series.
Our 2018 Webinar season starts September 19th. We are excited to bring many important topics to you in our upcoming season, the dates and topics are listed below. We will update this list as we fill more dates.
