Safe medical care — It’s your move!
A full-day, interactive, face-to-face educational event targeted to residents in the early years of their training (PGY1 and PGY2), focusing on patient safety and medical-legal risk reduction. The standardized curriculum is based on CMPA medical-legal risk data and the CanMEDS 2015 and CanMEDS-FM competencies. The workshop content was co-created with volunteers from Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoC). CMPA physician advisors and legal counsel, who have specialized content expertise, will facilitate all plenaries and workshops.
