combating stigma

This Web-Based Continuing Medical Education (CME) program entitled “Combating Stigma for Physicians and other Health Professionals”. 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.
