Webinars offer a convenient 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 interactive and give you an opportunity to ask experts about a variety of highly relevant topics, such as:
- 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 recordings of 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 2020 Webinar season starts in September. 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.
The weekly Tuesday "Current Events" email blast is back in full swing as of September, 2020. If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of all our accredited events, please fill in this form and get your name on our blast-list!
