PICNet is excited to be hosting a series of online lunch and learn sessions in May and June. The purpose is to provide opportunities to:
- Reflect on COVID-19 experiences in health care and affiliated community settings
- Identify key lessons learned for current and future pandemic planning
The sessions will be held virtually via Zoom and are intended to be an informal, collaborative, and educational opportunity for healthcare professionals. Each session will be 30-60 minutes and will include a presentation followed by a brief Q&A with an opportunity for discussion as time permits.
We want to thank our speakers who have agreed to share their experiences during this very busy time.
If you would like to attend the sessions, please register via the PHSA Learning Hub link: https://learninghub.phsa.ca/Courses/25135/covid-19-lessons-learned-lunch-and-learn-series
Zoom meeting invites will be emailed to registrants one to two weeks before each session.
Please feel free to share this information with others who may be interested in attending.
