High quality professional comportment is essential for healthcare teams to function effectively. Physician incivility, often revealed at times of tension, can cause stress, distress and poor productivity in co-workers of all kinds. On the other hand, civil behaviour results in positive social interactions. Civility amongst colleagues is associated with lower rates of professional burnout. Civil collegial relationships create comfortable and energizing workplaces with lower turnover rates and higher worker satisfaction. Everyone, including patients, benefits from civil professional behaviour. In this workshop fundamental aspects of civility in the healthcare workplace and culture along with strategies to respond in a positive manner to instances of everyday incivility will be explored.
This workshop will introduce participants to the field of peak performance. In this workshop we will explore the specifics of peak performance training and mental readiness that can be used in the many demanding situations in medicine. Practical exercises combined with group discussion will ensure participants comprehend specific mental readiness skills such as: focused attention, distraction control and visualization and managing adversity through mindfulness.

Physicians assume many roles in through their career and in their communities. Sometimes these roles take the shape of informal coaching relationships and mentorships that develop organically as physicians connect with colleagues at different career stages. During this session, physicians can provide each other with insight about their own experiences, encouragement and inspiration. Through a combination of didactic elements and breakout sessions physicians will become aware of their own communication style and identify opportunities for change.
Learn how to maximize personal satisfaction through your work and leisure careers, and ultimately into retirement. This unique yet simple approach, includes insights, strategies, and step-by-step instructions to enhance satisfaction in all spheres of life.
In recent years, the health care environment has been subject to multiple changes and tensions driven by economic pressures, generational and demographic changes, increasing complexity and volumes of patients, technology, and competency-based education. These factors are challenging physicians and health care leaders to review and improve the models of health care delivery. It is therefore crucial that physicians protect and enhance their health, while the medical system is undergoing such significant change and transformation.
This session will review physician health in the context of recent political, economic, demographic and educational changes. We will highlight related concepts such Quadruple Aim, Quality and Safety, Engagement, Resiliency, and discuss how they can be linked to creating and implementing a Physician Health Strategic Plan in your organization.
You may have a web site for your practice (or not…), but what about Facebook, or LinkedIn, or any of the other platforms that are so frequently mentioned? Have you got the feeling that all your colleagues are using social media and you wonder if you should be using it too? Are you worried that it’s going to be a massive headache, with no justifiable reward? In this interactive, one-hour session, Lee Godfrey, Managing Director, internet : intelligence inc. will provide information on some of the common tools that are out there and that some physicians are successfully and safely using.
The purpose of this program is to provide a business overview to Ontario physicians on concepts required to operate efficient practices. The program explores tools to measure office efficiency and useful strategies for controlling expenses. In doing so, physicians will be able to better manage the work they do, further ensuring their focus and time is dedicated to patient care.
Healthcare Digital Transformation: Enhance Clinical Communication Across the Primary Care Ecosystem:James Kavanaugh MD, Medical Director and Katie LeMoyne, Director Transformation Services - TELUS
Electronic medical record (EMR) adoption has reached 77% across primary care providers in Canada. These providers capture clinical information, including a patient’s problem list, medications, test results, and encounter notes, electronically, however they continue to rely on dated methods, including mail, fax and hand delivery by patients, to exchange clinical information with other members of a patient’s care team. The enablement of electronic clinical communication across all primary care providers will improve care coordination and reduce barriers to timely access to healthcare for Canadians.
