Our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program strives to cover the wide spectrum of knowledge relevant to Rural Practice, while also focusing on areas that address the specific needs of our community and our health care providers.
Our CPD Program is funded by the Community Rural Continuing Medical Education (RCME) Program – an initiative of the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (JSC).
Meet at the Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay (Haida Gwaii Hospital) RN Station every Friday from 11-12pm for our in-person SIMs & Skills Drills. This is a fun opportunity to practice a team-based approach to general and obstetrical/neonatal emergencies, through a rural remote lens. Haida Gwaii Nurses, Midwives, Physicians, Paramedics and their Learners welcome!
