Medical Stream

A one-day medical stream within Prevention Matters 2019 aims to address the needs of healthcare professionals in Saskatchewan, with applicable information, training, and tools to use in their practice. The medical stream sessions are open to all conference participants.

As a result of attending the Medical Stream, participants will be able to:

  • Develop clinical capacity in the prevention and early detection of common primary care medical problems in prenatal, child, and adolescent populations.
  • Identify strategies that can be utilized to engage patients and families in prevention practices to improve child health.
  • Understand the complexities of the interaction of social determinants of health upon healthcare outcomes and utilize evidence-based tool(s) to better assess and address social determinants of health in children and their families.
  • Recognize the contribution of knowledge exchange (KE) in strengthening healthcare practice and improving child health in Saskatchewan (examples of KE in healthcare include: evidence-informed medicine, cultural sensitivity and humility, listening to the patient voice, trauma-informed practice, and many more).

Please note: We are in the process of applying for Continuing Medical Education (CME) accreditation for the Medical Stream of this conference.
