800-663-7336 x2932 /

Physician engagement is vital to the success of Canadian health reform. This program provides physicians with the knowledge, skills and abilities – and the opportunity – to use those attributes to construct an action plan. Participants can become active leaders, bringing about effective physician engagement wherever they work ― whether as clinicians in primary or hospital care or as system administrators.

By course end, you’ll be able to:

  • assess the importance of physician engagement for the quality of patient care and its impact on day-to-day roles
  • review national and international evidence and the research underpinning efforts to improve physician engagement
  • determine optimal processes of physician engagement to enhance your ability to discriminate good from bad practices and to determine the degree to which you wish to be involved
  • increase your awareness and in-depth knowledge of efforts underway across Canada to improve physician engagement
  • judge the quality of approaches you may need to experience as a consequence of organizational efforts to improve physician engagement
  • construct your personal action plan for improving physician engagement in your workplace in relation to your personality, work–life balance needs and professional goals
