AFMC, with support from the Canadian Physician Health Institute, offers a presentation series on wellness for medical students, residents, medical educators, and practicing physicians. The series provides an introspective look at addiction in the healthcare setting. The series explores effective healthcare programs, addresses barriers to wellness such as cultural norms in the workplace and highlights important strategies for early detection and prevention of addiction. Presenters offer expertise and insight on risk factors for addiction, interactions between genetic factors and life experiences, and strategies to enhance self-awareness, self-monitoring and self-reflection.
