10 Truths about COVID-19

Talking to patients about COVID-19

On behalf of the SCFP Board of Directors, and Saskatchewan patients, we want to thank you for all your work around COVID-19.

We are thinking of you as you continue to provide indispensable care to our communities and patients. Family physicians are at the center of the COVID-19 outbreak and are working everyday to manage the ongoing crisis while still providing patient-centered, comprehensive care.  We appreciate your diligence, commitment to patient care, and the resultant sacrifices that you are making during this time.

The following resources have been developed that we hope will be useful as we navigate the COVID-19 outbreak.  The Saskatchewan College of Family Physicians, Saskatchewan Medical Association, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Public Health worked together to develop these tools and messages.
