Clinical Webinar Series

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:

    - H1N1
    - 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.
