Adaptive education: developing competence in virtual care

This BPER round is co-hosted by the Centre for Faculty Development at St. Michael’s Hospital, Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and the Wilson Centre

Physical distancing measures created urgent need for virtual care across our system.  However, formal training in virtual care is not necessarily included in the formal curricula during residency training nor is it always a part of continuing education. During this session, a panel of experts will describe the development of an education program that combines education science and theories of expertise to support practicing family physicians to provide comprehensive primary care virtually.

EI in the AI World: What do medical educators need to do to manage stress and burnout?

With rapid proliferation of digital technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare environment, there is an increased prevalence of burnout and stress among health professionals.

Emerging literature from neuroscience is providing us with new insights and powerful tools to increase self-awareness and to understand how our mind works in the face of difficult leadership moments.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to

  • Increase their self-awareness of how adverse situations impact their thoughts and thinking process
  • Discuss the key to sustainable leadership: Managing the cycle of sacrifice and renewal
  • Learn about conscious decision making for choosing the thoughts that will lead to a more productive outcome
