The Nova Scotia Society of Occupational Therapists has partnered with a number of allied health professional associations to form the Allied Health Coalition. Our first action has been to develop the Collaborative Care Professional Development Series.
This interdisciplinary professional development series seeks to raise awareness of the importance of collaborative care to improve patient outcomes, and to build community between diverse health care professionals to reduce burnout and improve outcomes for us all.
This series will alternate between panel discussions and self-care virtual lunches in which everyone will be encouraged to learn from one another and connect with each other in new and transformative ways.
This new educational series is jointly organized and sponsored by a growing list of organizations from across Nova Scotia which so far includes the following:
Interprofessional panel discussions
Supporting our self-care
These virtual lunch hour conversations invite allied practitioners to connect with each other, and share best practices and strategies for self-care.
