Workshop: A call to action for the future of medical professionalism
(Sun. Aug. 21, 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm)
Health care is changing in ways that often challenge how the profession has based its practice for decades. The CMA believes that physicians not only need to engage in conversations about medical professionalism but need to lead these conversations. This workshop session will officially launch the CMA’s medical professionalism strategy to engage members to define a progressive, values-based vision for medical professionalism in Canada, a vision focused on patient-centred care, quality and accountability, and inter-professional collaboration.
