Continuing Medical Education Treating Poverty: A Workshop for Family Physicians
is offered by the OCFP in collaboration with the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine, St. Michael’s Hospital, Inner City Health Associates and Health Providers Against Poverty.
Poverty represents a significant and reversible risk factor for poor health. This half-day workshop is offered to family physicians practicing in Ontario, with the goal of learning a simple three-step approach to intervening in patients’ poverty through the development of relevant clinical skills, and a deeper understanding of the federal and provincial income security systems and related resources.
This program meets the accreditation criteria of The College of Family Physicians of Canada and it has been approved for 3.5 Mainpro-C credits.
