We’re highlighting some great mental health medical education on a variety of specialized topics throughout March for health professionals across the province.

The newest FPON webinar on the subject of lung cancer has just launched and we also invite you to read our latest TCMP article on ceiling doses of ketorolac and ibuprofen in acute pain management. If you’re a rural physician looking to get involved in rurally focused program development, leadership coaching and mentoring, we’re calling on you to submit your interest to work with UBC CPD as a subject matter expert.
