Continuing Education

2017 CFHS Canadian Link Conference

Dec 4 - Dec 6, 2017
Ottawa, ON
2017 CFHS Canadian Link Conference
#LINK2017 is an innovative, ground-breaking conference that will examine the link between violence against human beings and animals, looking at the vulnerabilities in both populations and how they intermingle. We will bring together key Canadian sectors that work to prevent and address violence against people or animals for cross-sector training on how to stop the cycles of violence. This is the first time a conference of this kind has happened in Canada, and it promises to kick-start much-needed action on violence.

Fear Free Certification Program

The Fear Free Certification Program teaches veterinary professionals how to provide calming environments for their patients and educate clients on the advantages of a Fear Free visit for the health and well-being of their pets (as well as that of the pet owner and the hospital team). This is an online webinar series with 8 modules to be completed at the user's own pace.


The Social Side of Practice

Non-Scientific CE Hours: 20
The Social Side of Practice is a unique, fully-accredited veterinary continuing education program to balance the medical side of practice. It is designed to help veterinary practitioners and their teams do what they do even better by providing insight, guidance, and strategies on the non-medical aspects of practice. With a focus on wellness, veterinary-client-patient communication, teamwork, leadership, and organizational culture, The Social Side offers not only what is integral to practicing good medicine, but to achieving happiness and prosperity in practice.

10 CE offerings, all of which offer evidence-based content reflecting the literature in the medical and social sciences. The Social Side of Practice sessions are RACE-approved.

Sessions are provided in lecture (1 hr.) and interactive (1.5-2 hrs.) formats. We award 1 CE credit per CE hour (50 minutes) with options for 1, 1.5, or 2 CE credits/session, depending on the session length. They are offered all year around, by request, to veterinarians and their teams across Canada (in-person when geographically feasible, and via webinar otherwise).
