Virtual Collaboration Forums

Save Your Thursdays!

The CMN Virtual Collaboration Forums (VCF) are online webinars featuring relevant topics relating to chronic pain and substance use that have been identified by CMN membership and the CMN Scientific Planning Committee. Each session features relevant, impactful presentations with 1-3 speakers focusing on what you need to know now.

Starting this fall, Thursday nights are now home to two of the Alberta College of Family Physician’s (ACFP) popular webinar series — CMN Virtual Collaboration Forums and the Virtual Education Series. All health care professionals are welcome to attend these free sessions.
