This three-credits-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 21 Mainpro+® credits.

Participants will identify opportunities on how to “practise wisely”, with a focus on ordering tests and imaging wisely, shared decision-making, avoiding over-diagnosis and over-screening for cancer, and de-prescribing using the latest evidence and tools from diverse sources.

Participants will learn how to access reliable, curated and renewable online resources for an evidence-informed practice supporting individualized patient-care. Active learning exercises such as case studies, individual reflection and group work will help participants to build communication skills to guide their patients through the shift from seeking sickness to enhancing health.
