Shifting Culture & Shared Learnings: Building Community to Support Canadian Medical Oncologists

calendar
Learning Objectives

Burnout has been a long-term problem in healthcare and the demands on oncologists over the last two years have only intensified the issue.  Delayed cancer screening and subsequent presentation means Oncologists will continue to face high levels of job stress over the years to come.

Join co-chairs Dr. Sharlene Gill and Dr. Scott Berry for a 3-part webinar series. With the help of Canadian and International experts, the series will explore how to recognize burnout, build resilience and develop community.
