CPD Programs - Changes Due to COVID-19 Response

The Faculty of Health Sciences has suspended all in-person academic conferences and events - this decision has a significant impact on the delivery of our CPD and other events this Spring. Challenges noted have included the availability of presenters and other health professionals to attend our programs, in person and online.

This decision was not taken lightly. The protection of the healthcare workforce is of paramount importance, and this decision was taken with the advice and direction of the local public health authority.

We are investigating options to deliver programs by remote methods, so that you can continue to receive needed, high quality professional development from your offices and homes. Our Office has experience in easy-to-use remote delivery technology, and we look forward to serving your learning needs in this way.

As part of that move, we will be in contact with our speakers and planning committees to do some further planning. We will also be examining our fee structures, cancellation and refund policies to ensure maximum flexibility.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we will communicate with registrants and newsletter subscribers as updates become available. Sign up for our CPD Newsletter Here
