Twenty-first century challenges: informing medical practice in an era of increasing complexity and rising expectations

Save the date for the much-anticipated College Education Day, held again this year at the Vancouver Convention Centre. With guidance and insight from experienced, engaging experts, this year’s program will provide an opportunity for deep reflection on some major challenges, which are often brought to the College.

The College is pleased to welcome Dr. Pat Croskerry from Dalhousie University as its morning plenary presenter to address his work in understanding how physicians think in order to avoid diagnostic errors.

The first afternoon plenary presenter is Dr. Alain Naud from Université Laval, who will discuss his experiences in medical assistance in dying from a Quebec perspective.

The final afternoon plenary presenter is Dr. Hakique Virani from the University of Alberta who will address the opioid crisis from public health and clinical perspectives.
