Primary Care Forum (Webinar) – Fall 2020

September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Primary Care Forum – September 29th 7:00-8:30pm

Sep 29, 2020 – 7pm to 8pm

As schools open up across the province, the unique challenges of “Back-To-School 2020” will have a significant impact on both family physicians, primary care providers as well as the patients they serve.

Both the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education have provided some guidance for the management of COVID-19 in schools; as signs/symptoms of COVID-19 and other illnesses present in students and staff, 
patients will be turning to us as clinicians for advice on testing, self-care, sick notes and when to return to school/work. It is crucial that we are all on the same page.

To help in this regard, The Ontario Health Central Region Primary Care Leadership Planning Table will be hosting a webinar event to examine and clarify these issues on a practical level.

Please join your Family Medicine colleagues on 
Tuesday, September 29th from 7:00-8:30pm for presentations and an open, Q&A style discussion with Public Health and Infectious Disease experts from within Ontario Health Central Region.
