April 25th to 27th, 2023 | Ottawa

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Theatre Arts: The CMPA surgical safety course. This intensive course has been designed to empower physicians and their perioperative teams to improve their OR environment and foster safe surgical care.

Here is some of the educational and logistical information you will need over the course of the three days.

Course Material and Pre-Course Reading

Your experience at Theatre Arts will be enhanced if you have completed the pre-readings before arriving in Ottawa. Journal Club materials are selected on the basis of content to foster discussion around unifying themes, rather than value for critical appraisal.
