*Online registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending the Metamorphosis program you are welcome to register at the door on Thursday.
The Metamorphosis 2019 program tackles topics that keep you awake at night. From improving the lives of those livling with addictions to differentiating between the serious and non-serious causes of the red eye, shoulder issues and side effects of biologics, attendees will leave this program feeling better prepared to care for their patients.
CNPS experts will offer attendees the chance to critically evaluate situations which have developed into medical legal cases.

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.
