VPSA provides members with opportunities to connect at its various events. Check out these events to engage with your colleagues.
VPSA event postponements and cancellations
Out of an abundance of caution and with concern for our membership, VPSA is cancelling its physician appreciation and networking lunches at VGH, UBCH, and GF Strong for the time being.
Similarly, we are postponing two of our previously announced events: Part 3 of My Hospital Footprint that was scheduled for March 25 and our April 1 Breakfast with Leaders session with Dr. Kathleen Ross.
At this time, we hope to proceed with our April 30 Surgical Patient Optimization Collaborative (SPOC) follow up and update, and will share more information on this and our other events in the days to come.
April 30: Surgical Patient Optimization Collaborative (SPOC) Update and Follow Up!
Join SPOC co-lead Dr. Kelly Mayson and other team members for more details on the SPOC process, case studies, and how optimization has made a difference for patient outcomes. We will also have practical office management suggestions for managing iron deficiency and glycemic control of patients in the pre-op period. This is an opportunity for family physicians and specialists to connect with surgical specialties and improve the perioperative pathway for patients.
