OPTIONAL MAINPRO+ CERTIFIED WORKSHOPS


CASTED: Emergency – The ED Orthopedics Course

8:00 am – 4:30 pm

Victoria Inn, 1808 Wellington Avenue

FEE: $1,095 + GST – MAX 36 PARTICIPANTS

MAINPRO+ Credits:  27

CASTED: Emergency is ruthlessly clinical – a practical, high-yield, practice-changing ED orthopedics course. By the end of the course, you will be better at diagnosing subtle but serious ED ortho injuries. You will have a much better approach to ED reductions and immobilization. And you will have a better sense of when ortho needs to get involved (and why!).  The course will be valuable to anyone who manages ED patients with acute injuries – from the rural to urban.

CASTED has been presented over 300 times – mostly across Canada but also in the US and UK. Numerous clinical pearls are offered on assessment, special x-rays to consider, subtle clues to recognize ‘red flag’ patients and knowing who needs a reduction. Get comprehensive ‘hands-on’ instruction, then practice various reduction, immobilization, and moulding techniques. A detailed physical exam is reviewed for the various joints.

CASTED is focused on clinically relevant teaching points. We want you to understand ED ortho – not just memorize it! By the end of the course, you will have significantly increased confidence and skills for use on your next shift!

This program meets the accreditation criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been accredited for up to 27 Mainpro+ credits. (3 credits/hour; 1-day course = 27;)


LEARNING ESSENTIAL APPROACHES TO PALLIATIVE CARE (LEAP) Mini

1-day introductory palliative care course for health care professionals

8:00 am – 5:30 pm

Inn at the Forks

Fee: $650 + GST

Mainpro+ Credits: 16.50

LEAP Mini is a one-day course that features an inter-professional approach, face-to-face learning with group discussion and case studies, and resources that include the Pallium Palliative Pocketbook. LEAP Mini is ideal for any health care professional (e.g. physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, home care nurses, etc.) whose primary focus of work is not palliative care but who provides care for patients with life-threatening and progressive life-limiting illnesses. This course will provide health care professionals and family health teams with the essential skills and competencies of the palliative care approach, with course modules that cover topics such as advance care planning; essential conversations; taking ownership; pain; delirium; and nausea, nutrition, and hydration.

LEAP Mini has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 16.50 Mainpro+ credits.

The capacity of LEAP Mini course is 25-30 people.


PRACTICE IMPROVEMENT ESSENTIALS WORKSHOP (PART 1)

9:00 am – 12:00 noon

Inn at the Forks

Fee: $35 + GST

Mainpro+ Credits: 6

Practice Improvement can be challenging for family physicians given the competing demands in primary care to “improve how the work is done.”  To help family physicians improve the care we provide by harnessing quality improvement (QI) methods, data readiness and to nurture a culture of curiosity, the CFPC has developed the Practice Improvement Initiative (Pii).

The educational component of Pii is a set of two 3-hour workshops titled “Practice Improvement Essentials”.  We are excited to be offering Part 1 of Practice Improvement Essentials on February 13 at the Manitoba College of Family Physician offices from 5:30-8:30p.m.  Dinner will be provided free of charge.

Practice Improvement Essentials is certified for 6 Mainpro+ credits.

Inn at the Forks, 75 Forks Market Road, Winnipeg

Fee: $475 + GST

Mainpro+ Credits: 6

 ADHD is a complex disorder with varying presentations of type and symptom severity. In order to properly manage ADHD holistically, clinical tools should be used to: 1) Assess the type and severity of symptoms, 2) Review specific areas of impairment in the patient’s life across multiple settings, and 3) Identify and explore any potential co-morbid diagnoses. This session will outline resources and recommendations for identifying an individual’s symptoms and levels of impairment in a clinical setting. The role of appropriate medication/dosage and ongoing treatment monitoring will be discussed.

Learning Objectives to Identify:

  • Key components when assessing for ADHD, including available tools
  • Questions to raise with patients in order to evaluate co-morbid disorders
  • Current pharmaceutical options for ADHD and related comorbidities
