New Prescribing Safely assessments | Wellness support

July 15, 2020 | Author: Susan Moffatt-Bruce

Dear colleagues,

In case you missed it: What is SMB3? It’s my top three bite-sized bits of information that I will share with you a couple of times each month. SMB3 will feature three resources, tips or important updates that I hope you will find helpful.

  • New assessments! Prescribing Safely Canada is available free of cost to Fellows. Make the most of the opportunity to earn MOC Section 3 credits this summer with three recently launched assessments – Analgesics and Adjuvants, Anticoagulants and Antidepressants and Anxiolytics. Get started today to assess your prescribing skills and prioritize patient safety.
  • Wellness support for physicians is available. According to the 2017 CMA National Physician Health Survey, more than 1 in 4 physicians and residents report high levels of burnout. Visit the CMA’s Wellness Support page for help and find the support line for your area.
  • Black Physicians of Canada is a new, non-profit organization founded with the express intent to address anti-Black racism within the medical profession. They are inviting all physicians and physicians-in-training of every race across Canada who are interested in receiving more information and/or joining to complete their short survey by July 31. This brief survey will also provide you with an opportunity to inform the development of this new organization.

Stay well,


Susan D. Moffatt-Bruce, MD, PhD, MBA, FACS, FRCSC
