Collaborators

We use a co-operative model to augment education and prevention resources around physician wellness. Essential to this model are the contributions of Physician and Non-Physician Collaborators within Alberta. Well Doc Alberta provides an avenue for those with physician wellness expertise to reach a broader audience and to train others to meet the increasing demands for physician wellness resources.

 

Collaborators may contribute in many ways including:

  • Sharing resources they have developed

  • Helping develop new education resources

  • Updating existing education resources (from personal or other sources)

  • Teaching education resource materials directly

  • Training other physicians to teach education resource materials


We are pleased to introduce you to our growing list of Collaborators.
