Please join us for a special BCCFP Family Medicine Conference: The Future of Family Medicine at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver. We have two full days of CPD planned for November 2 and 3, as well as an optional Practising Wisely workshop set for November 4.

Program

There will be six plenary and 24 breakout sessions over the two days, as well as an awards and networking reception at the end of day one.  We’ve also added some new features for 2018 – PechaKuchas, poster presentations and a Town Hall discussion. This year’s plenaries include: High Times: Evidence-based Conversations about Cannabis; Deprescribing in our Elderly Population; and Adverse Child Experiences (ACEs) Trauma Informed Care.

Clinical breakout topics range from an update on adult vaccinations to driving assessments for older adults and managing pain without opioids. We also have some timely practice management breakout topics, including good practices for managing office staff and pointers to help you optimize your time with patients.
