Primary Care Learning Sessions

Primary Care Learning Sessions

The Network also partnered with UBC Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD) to develop and present a series of interactive cancer care workshops for family physicians throughout BC. As of 2016, the program engaged over 800 family practitioners in 80+ different communities across BC. Workshops included small-group, case-based learning to support family physicians in their role along the cancer care continuum and focussed on Breast, Prostate, Colorectal Cancer and Advanced Cancers. 

The next stage of this initiative is to transition the Breast, Prostate and Colorectal workshops to online learning. We are also starting work on a new series of workshops to be provided both in-community and online. The first will launch in 2020.
