Full Event Description

It is my pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to attend the first national University of Ottawa Simulation-Based ECT Course for Practitioners, to be offered at the end of the CPA’s Annual Scientific Meeting on Sunday, September 29th, 2013. Please see the attached brochure for further details.

In a randomized-controlled trial comparing traditional ECT training methods, this is the first simulation-based ECT course proven to increase skills, knowledge and confidence for ECT practitioners (J ECT 2013 In Press).  This activity is an Accredited Simulation Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, and approved by University of Ottawa’s Office of Continuing Medical Education. You will need to visit MAINPORT to record your learning and outcomes. You may claim a maximum of 10 hours, which entitles you to receive 30 credits for this activity.

The cost of the course is $750, and enrolment will be limited to 16 psychiatrists. We are encouraging all psychiatrists currently practicing ECT, or those who are considering doing so, to enroll for this course.
