Upcoming MOC-accredited events: Moral injury webinar | MAiD research forum
- Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, many health care workers have experienced moral stress. On Monday, February 22 from 12–1 p.m. (EST), we’re hosting Moral Injury in Health Care Professionals, a Maintenance of Certification Program (MOC) accredited (Section 1) online session designed to help you understand, recognize and manage moral injury. Register to attend the webinar. A recording will be made available after the event.
- I encourage all of you to attend next week’s virtual Annual Meeting of the Members (AMM), which is an opportunity for you to provide feedback on the Royal College’s 2020 accomplishments, learn about plans for 2021, review financial information and elect Council members. The AMM will take place Thursday, February 25 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. (EST). Register to attend the meeting.
- Join us on Wednesday, March 3 from 12-1 p.m. (EST) for Unravelling Bill C-7 and Its Impact to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) in Canada. This MOC-accredited (Section 1) virtual forum will feature a distinguished panel who will discuss existing and changes in legislation; contrast key points regarding the evolving debate around Bill C-7; and explain several challenges of assessing patients for MAiD through a physician lens. Register for the forum and submit your questions in advance. Attendance is limited to the first 1000 registrants. A recording will be made available after the event.
Please note: Our role as an organization is to provide a platform to discuss the issues and policies that affect specialists in Canada. We recognize that there are many viewpoints on this issue. The views of panelists during this event do not represent the views of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
