Practising Well Community of Practice
Practising Well Community of Practice - an intentional conversation for shared learning hosted by the DFCM Division of Mental Health and Addiction and the Ontario College of Family Physicians.
Part of the Practising Well initiative, the Community of Practice was built by family physicians, for family physicians, to connect in real time and learn from others who are working with patients to address their mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain. These are challenging conditions and treating them has only grown more demanding.
Join us on Wednesday, Sep 27 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm as our panelists discuss how legalized cannabis and the marketing of its products has led to patients experiencing an increased dependency on cannabis to manage pain and anxiety and what family doctors can do to support patients experiencing cannabis dependency.
Topic: Helping patients manage cannabis dependencies
Speakers: Drs. Meldon Kahan and Suzanne Turner
Moderator: Dr. Stephanie Zhou
Join us, all family doctors including residents are welcome.
