Continuing Medical Education

The Network strives to provide directly relevant, accessible oncology continuing medical education opportunities for family physicians in BC.

Presentations and Hand-outs from our November 20-21, 2015 Events - see Event Materials below. 

November 20-21, 2015
We held two CME offerings this past November – our annual Family Practice Oncology CME Day on November 21 preceded by a November 20 afternoon session on Oncology Imaging for Primary Care.

Scheduled to maximize learning opportunities, these two back-to-back CME events featured all practical information to strengthen primary care oncology skills and knowledge. Both took place at the BC Cancer Agency’s Research Centre (675 W. 10th Ave.) in Vancouver.

The events were accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the BC Chapter for up to 10 M1 credits: 6.5 for November 21 and 3.5 for November 20.

November 19, 2016 is the date for this year's Family Practice Oncology CME Day. Details to come. 

For more information contact Jennifer Wolfe.

Presented in partnership with UBC's Division of Continuing Professional Development, Webcasts are held 8-9:00 a.m. (Pacific time) the third Thursday of every month (except July, August and December). Our complimentary Webcasts provide opportunity to participate in topical, interactive oncology presentations from anywhere with Internet access. 

The program is nationally accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the BC Chapter for up to 1 Mainpro-M1 credit per session. Participants can also earn 2 Mainpro-C credits by taking part in the College's Linking Learning to Practice initiative.

Community workshops

Community Cancer Outreach Program on Education 

The Network also partners with UBC Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD) to develop and present interactive cancer care workshops for family physicians throughout BC. As of 2015, the program engaged over 700 family practitioners in 31 different communities across BC. Workshops include small-group, case-based learning to support family physicians in their role along the cancer care continuum. Workshops currently focus on Breast, Prostate, Colorectal Cancer and Advanced Cancer Care.
