This interactive online course intends to educate family physicians and specialists in the recognition of stigma related to mental illness. The course is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to recognize attitudes and behaviours that could potentially lead to stigma as well as provide an example of a practical clinical approach to helping doctors, other healthcare professionals and patients.
“Combating Stigma for Physicians and Other Health Professionals” is also introducing a fairly novel idea that we are not only after attitudinal change but also process or implementation change. This approach will address some of the challenges of stigma especially social distancing, healthy social contact and good communication.
People with lived experience can be invaluable allies in the knowledge translation and dissemination phases because they have experienced depression.
The objective of this education is to prepare lived experience participants with the knowledge to actively participate in a research team and communicate effectively with depression researchers and other mental health professionals.
Under the project management of the Mood Disorders Society of Canada, this education curriculum was developed by Barbara Everett, Ph.D. This three-day in person training session has eight modules and has been delivered in-person four times across Canada. Evaluations have been very positive.
In order to provide the training to a wider audience, we have now digitized the program modules and provide the training in an exciting online format, easy to access, and very engaging and enjoyable to participate in and learn from. Allowing you to benefit from the training regardless of your location.
