SACME’s 2022 Annual Meeting will explore personal and professional well-being of the interprofessional team of CPD practitioners, educators, health care professionals, and learners through personal stories, demonstrations, best practices, and evidence-based research. The lenses through which these topics will be examined include emerging and published education science; mindfulness-based stress reduction; best practices in CPD delivery and operations; equity, diversity and inclusion; technology-enabled learning and teaching; building effective teams (administrative and clinical); and knowledge translation.

The target audience consists of physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, clinician-educators, accreditors, CPD scholars, and administrators, among others. They will benefit from the ability to apply strategies that improve well-being of the individual and the team, as well as to support greater efficiencies in the systems in which they work.  This is of particular relevance now as we enter our “new normal,” caused by the disruptions of the pandemic, social injustices, and increased workloads witnessed throughout the last two years.

Successful Completion

To successfully complete this activity, the required evaluation must be completed no later than than Saturday, April 9, 2022. Thereafter, the evaluation will no longer be available and credits will not be issued. No refunds will be offered for failure to complete the required evaluation by the stated deadline.

Target Audience

This course is designed for physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, clinician-educators, accreditors, CPD scholars, and administrators.

Learning Objectives

Following this educational activity, learners (members of an interprofessional team) will be able to:

  1. Develop strategies to improve their own well-being and to support their co-workers, clinicians, learners, and/or patients in their well-being as evidenced by self-report of intent to change and post-activity reflection statements;
  2. Identify ways to improve interprofessional collaboration through maintaining a climate of mutual respect and shared values as measured by post-activity confidence scales;
  3. Build efficiencies in practice that reduce stress for CPD staff, educators, clinician-educators, and researchers;
  4. Build efficiencies in learning that reduce burdens on the busy clinician learner;
  5. Examine methods that support growth and adaptation to work, life and learning in a disrupted environment (move from “survive” to “thrive”), based on confidence scales post-activity and self-reported change in later follow-up or discussion.
