By now you will appreciate that medical education is the bedrock upon which excellent healthcare is built – it is vital.
With our successful move into the HOpe Centre, we continue to build our knowledge-platform for the equitable exchange of ideas and information. With kind support from Lundbeck Canada, and from you all, we continue to grow our Mental Health Breakfast Meeting: thank you very much. We have a new home and we will be re-forming our video linkage with the Sea To Sky Community in the near future.
I see our meeting as a space for you to present ideas, information, and testimony from YOUR perspective; and so this is a call for volunteer-speakers for our ongoing sponsored, autumn 2015 programme, please.
To those for whom this is new – speakers may present educational material on a mental health-related topic of interest to a wide, multi-disciplinary audience within the VCH community. You may wish to present a matter upon which you have read deeply, or researched; you may have specific findings or a study you are interested in doing that you would like to describe; you might have attended a conference about which you would like to tell others; there may be a clinical case encountered which moved you or illustrates matters of importance or concern; or you could have a wider, cross-cutting theme which addresses a number of related issues, relevant to the mental-health professional community; etc. etc.
Your presentation should last around 40 minutes with time for questions from an audience over breakfast at The HOpe Centre, and future video-link to partnered sites. I can help with formulating a topic/area, writing and preparing for the presentation and will be there to facilitate productive discussion. You will receive nominal payment of a $50 gift-card, with the real “win” being the opportunity to present to your peers and developing your personal repertoire for the future
Please continue to make this space your own by considering a presentation, ESPECIALLY if you are new!!!
I look forward to your response and with best wishes,
DR APU T. CHAKRABORTY
