Given the amount of interest shown and the outstanding reviews received from the sold-out May 1 program, Queen's Department of Emergency Medicine will be offering a second iteration of the program on June 5, 2019.

Note: This program is open only to healthcare providers.

At the end of this conference the learner will be able to:

  • Integrate learnings from the epidemiology of Lyme Disease and its incidence within our region into clinical practice.
  • Diagnose and treat acute and disseminated Lyme disease
  • Assess the impact of local research initiatives, including patient recruitment, in the field of Lyme Disease

This Group Learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by Queen’s University for up to 3.75 Mainpro+ credits. This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and is approved by the Office of Continuing Professional Development, Queen’s University.
