Join us in Victoria on April 5 and 6 for a special Family Medicine Conference – Family Doctors: Standing Up and Standing Out.

We’ve partnered with the Society of General Practitioners of BC (SGP) to provide a unique two-day program focusing on the many roles of today’s family physician. The conference will take place at the Marriott Inner Harbour Hotel.

You will gain valuable insight into leading change in family medicine, managing your practice, and looking after your own professional needs. There’s also a full day of the high-quality, clinical CPD for which the BCCFP’s Family Medicine Conference is renowned. To find out more, take a look at the conference agenda and information about the plenary and breakout sessions.

This Group Learning activity has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the BC Chapter for up to 12.25 Mainpro+ Certified credits.

Conference Highlights

On the first day, we will hear from and learn from BC family physicians whose work has changed the lives of their patients and their physician colleagues. The sessions focus on advocacy and improvement skills that all family physicians can use, including social media use, quality improvement in your office, billing for paperwork, and burnout prevention.

On April 6, the focus is on hot clinical topics that include: helping patients transition from opioid pain relief; treating concussion using the newest guidelines; diagnosing PTSD; providing advice on medical cannabis; and introducing the topic of medical assistance in dying (MAiD).
