Any Resident Physicians interested in maternity care should come along to a Resident RTVS Round led by Dr. Suzane Campbell. This session, aimed at Physician Residents in rural BC, is entitled “Snapshot of Rural Maternity” and will offer guidance on what it’s like to provide maternity services in a rural setting. The talk will take place on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021, at 1 p.m. Pacific.

RTVS is also being featured in a Virtual Health Grand Round taking place on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The session is hosted by UBC CPD.

During this virtual rounds, RUDi (Rural Urgent Doctor in-aid) lead Dr. Brydon Blacklaws will share reflections from supporting the Emergency Room providers in Dawson Creek. The Dawson Creek hospital supports over 14,000 people from neighbouring communities, making it much larger in terms of size, volume, and acuity compared with the facilities that RUDi typically supports.

Dr. Rina Chadha will present on the HEiDi 811 Physician Service. The HEiDi program provides just-in-time physician medical advice to residents across BC who are triaged by 811 nursing. Dr. Chadha will reflect on what the HEiDi physicians have learned and what the future holds in the changing medical landscape in helping patients navigate their medical urgency.

Physicians who attend can earn 1.00 in credits from UBC CPD.
