Saskatchewan Antimicrobial Stewardship Symposium

Nov 14 - Nov 15, 2017
Saskatoon, SK
TCU Place
Scientific CE Hours: 8
The rise of infections resistant to antimicrobial treatment is of increasing concern globally, nationally, and locally. Canada has committed to supporting the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). The recently completed Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance and Antimicrobial Use: A Pan-Canadian Framework for Action will, in the coming year, be followed by an action plan that will call upon Saskatchewan’s participation. AMS involves diverse stakeholders and interests covering human and animal health. Although action is being taken in many areas, there has not yet been a forum bringing together the various Saskatchewan stakeholders to focus on AMS in human health.

This is the first time a conference of this kind has happened in Canada, and it promises to kick-start much-needed action on violence.

The Social Side of Practice

Scientific CE Hours: 20
The Social Side of Practice is a unique, fully-accredited veterinary continuing education program to balance the medical side of practice. It is designed to help veterinary practitioners and their teams do what they do even better by providing insight, guidance, and strategies on the non-medical aspects of practice. With a focus on wellness, veterinary-client-patient communication, teamwork, leadership, and organizational culture, The Social Side offers not only what is integral to practicing good medicine, but to achieving happiness and prosperity in practice.

10 CE offerings, all of which offer evidence-based content reflecting the literature in the medical and social sciences. The Social Side of Practice sessions are RACE-approved.

Sessions are provided in lecture (1 hr.) and interactive (1.5-2 hrs.) formats. We award 1 CE credit per CE hour (50 minutes) with options for 1, 1.5, or 2 CE credits/session, depending on the session length. They are offered all year around, by request, to veterinarians and their teams across Canada (in-person when geographically feasible, and via webinar otherwise).

To find out more about this RACE approved program, visit Pets Plus Us, call 1-800-700-3391 or email care@petsplusus.com
