Family Doctors: Standing Up and Standing Out
We are happy to be co-hosting a family medicine conference in Victoria with the BC College of Family Physicians (BCCFP) on April 5 and 6, 2019.
Ordinary family doctors are extraordinary. We provide excellent clinical care and advocate for our patients in a fragmented health system. We walk beside our patients through their medical and personal struggles. The mantle of responsibility weighs heavy on our shoulders.
On April 5 and 6, we invite you to join your colleagues in a celebration of the many roles of today’s family doctors. This two-day conference has a unique program of plenary and breakout sessions that will help you with your day-to-day working life.
- Hear from other BC family doctors about how their advocacy has improved the system for patients and physicians
- Speak with family practice leaders from SGP, BCCFP, FPSC, and Doctors of BC about how primary care in BC is changing and how you can influence that change
- Improve your advocacy and professional skills, including social media use, working with your health authority, billing for uninsured services, and burnout prevention
- Update your clinical knowledge on topics such as opioid deprescribing, insomnia management, hypertension targets, medical cannabis, and MAiD
