UPCOMING PHYSICIAN EVENTS
Physician colleagues and health organizations have requested MSPEI share the following information with PEI physicians.
PUBLIC HEALTH AGENCY OF CANADA: Concussion Awareness Training Tool
- Effectively assess a patient’s concussion situation within the initial hours post-injury.
- Optimally manage concussion care during the first two-to-four weeks post-injury in order to decrease long-term effects including management of symptoms and return to school, work and play activities.
- Identify when referral to specialty care is required.
PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICE: Recreation Cannabis Public Education
As part of its ongoing public education regarding recreational cannabis use, the Chief Public Health Officer is providing patient education materials (poster and cards) on the health effects of cannabis during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The materials are available on PEl's Just the Facts website. Also available on the website are a series of factsheets, including for parents on how to talk to youth, for young adults, and one on the laws.
If you would like copies email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
RESEARCH STUDY: The distribution of PEI medical graduates
Physicians are invited to participate in this survey to support a study of the distribution of PEI medical graduates from Memorial University and Dalhousie University medical schools. Based on their chosen location of practice, the study will speculate whether the educational institution and curriculum are influential in these decisions. It will also examine the underlying causes in the difference of distribution of specialties/locations of medical school graduates. The results of this research would be of particular interest to both universities to see how they may be unknowingly influencing their students or to gauge their success if they have a preferred career outcome for their students. The results may also benefit the province of PEI and aid in physician recruitment and retention.

Seeking Physician Advice: Perimenopause/Menopause
The Interministerial Women’s Secretariat with PEI is doing research into creating a perimenopause and menopause resource. They are seeking a family physician, OB-GYN, or another PEI physician representative to sit on an advisory committee to review and provide input into the document. The commitment is expected to be one or two meetings, with some email correspondence.
Interested physicians can contact Nancy MacPhee at (902) 432-0468.
