Physician Wellness: Reflections on the Challenges and Opportunities

Webinar | September 12, 2022
4 PM PT/ 5 PM MT/ 6 PM CT/ 7 PM ET / 8 PM AT / 8:30 PM NT


Physicians and healthcare providers face complex challenges that have been amplified by the pandemic and recent global events. These challenges include ongoing workplace stressors, strain on personal relationships and financial stress; and physician wellness is on the line — now more than ever.

Join our expert panel — Dr. Martin Koyle, Hayley Harlock and our own Stephen Hunt — for a candid discussion regarding the challenges the physician community is experiencing related to wellness, relationships and money. The panel will discuss strategies to help mitigate these challenges and strengthen and support the physician community.

You are welcome to comment or ask questions, before and during this session and we will share them with our panel.

Canadian Advanced Learning in Bariatric Care (CALIBRE)

Webinar | Cohorts starting November 15, 2022, November 29, 2022 and December 13, 2022
4 PM PT/ 5 PM MT/ 6 PM CT/ 7 PM ET / 8 PM AT / 8:30 PM NT


Calibre (short for Canadian Advanced Learning in Bariatric Care) was developed over the past year by leading national and global obesity researchers and clinicians, many of whom co-authored the Canadian Adult Obesity Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs), first published in 2020. Canadians who live with obesity made important contributions to the program.

Through a combination of online reading and video presentations and three live, interactive workshop sessions, Calibre covers:

  • Determinants and pathophysiology of obesity
  • Weight bias, stigma & discrimination
  • Evidence-based obesity treatments and supports in the Canadian CPGs (physical activity, medical nutrition therapy, behavioural/psychological interventions, pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery)
  • Collaborative goal setting, managing outcomes and changing tactics

Registration for the first Calibre cohort, limited to 50 participants, is now open at obesitycanada.ca/calibre. The first 50 individuals to register will save CDN$200 off the program’s regular CDN$799 fee. Live sessions for the first cohort will run from 7:00 PM to 9:00 pm PM on November 15, 2022, November 29, 2022 and December 13, 2022. More cohorts will be added (at the regular price) as registration increases.

This activity is an accredited self-assessment program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and approved by the Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism. You may claim a maximum of 18 hours (credits are automatically calculated). Participants should only claim credits commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This 3-credit-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 44.25 Mainpro+® Credits.
