BCCDC Environmental Health Seminar Series

BCCDC Environmental Health Seminar Series
BC Centre for Disease Control
Thursday, April 30, 2015 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
Vancouver, BC

Click here to register

The BC Centre for Disease Control invites you to attend the upcoming Environmental Health Seminar. Presentation recordings are available upon request.

Seminar details

Topic: EHOs’ involvement with food security: Promoting food donations
Presenters: Winifred Lao, Kimberly Wrixon, Cathy Wong, and Wilson Yu, British Columbia Institute of Technology

Summary: Food insecurity is a serious public health issue that can result in chronic illnesses, as well as social and mental health problems. Although food distribution organizations (FDOs) are not the ultimate solution to address food insecurity, they were formed to provide support to those in need by collecting and distributing foods. However, FDOs encounter many food donation issues, which affect their capability to help improve the health of the food insecure. Hence, this webinar will provide an overview of the issues related to food insecurity and food donations to enhance Environmental Health Officers’ (EHOs) understanding of the public health significance. To increase EHOs’ involvement in food donations, their current and future potential roles as well as the available resources will also be discussed.

These sessions are eligible for CIPHI Professional Development Hours and Royal College Continuing Medical Education credits. If you would like a letter of credit validation for CME credits or CIPHI PDHs, please specify this on the registration form. Letters are sent out annually in January. 

This series is a self-approved group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  In order to receive Royal College CME credits, you must complete an evaluation form, which will be sent to you after the seminar.

Audits of Professional Development Hours

The Council of Professional Experience (CoPE) will begin to conduct audits of Professional Development Hours (PDHs) submitted by CIPHI regular members for 2014. The audits are conducted annually and a percentage of regular members from each Branch are selected using a random selection process.

At this time the Members Service Centre (MSC) site is locked and you will not be able to add any more PDH’s for 2014.

If you are selected for an audit, an email will be sent to you after the audit letting you know if you passed or failed your audit. Explanation of the audit is given and members can see any comments made by the auditor. The audits usually take 3-4 weeks to complete.

A revised version of the CIPHI CPC Professional Development Model can be found under the Library tab of the MSC or at http://www.ciphi.ca/files/documents/cpc/prodev.pdf

If you have any questions or comments with respect to audits, please contact CoPE at cope@ciphi.ca
