COVID-19 Community of Practice
We have all had to change the way we work in response to COVID-19. Keeping up with new guidance, responding to the changing environment, and navigating uncertainty has become the new normal and at times can be overwhelming. The COVID-19 Community of Practice is a space for family physicians across Ontario to connect and learn from each other during this challenging time.
Approximately once a month, practicing family physicians share their perspectives on COVID-related topics in one-hour long interactive webinars. Each session is recorded and shared after the event.
This COVID-19 Community of Practice is a joint initiative from the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM) and the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP).
This one-credit-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 1 Mainpro+ credits.The COVID-19 Community of Practice for Ontario Family Physician includes a series of planned webinars. Each session is worth 1 Mainpro+ credits, for up to a total of 26 credits.

Getting to herd immunity: addressing children, confidence, and complacency
Please join us for the twenty-fifth in our series 'Changing the way we work' on Friday, June 18, 2021 at 8:00-9:00am (ET). With more than 70% of eligible Ontarians vaccinated with their first dose, we have a lot to celebrate. How can we continue to increase this percentage and achieve herd immunity? At our next session, we will be continuing our discussion about the COVID-19 vaccines with a deeper dive into vaccinating in children and youth, hear about which Ontarians are yet to receive a first dose, and discuss how we can address those experiencing complacency or a lack of confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.
