Public Health Agency of Canada Webinar: SRH Week 2018

This year, SRH Week will take place from February 12-18 with the theme: Mind Your “Business”. Hosted by Action Canada, the campaign provides resources for health care providers to have open conversations with their patients and provide affirming and non-stigmatizing care at the intersections of mental health and sexual / reproductive health. The campaign will also see the launch of several articles by community experts working at these intersections, a podcast-style recorded interview between a health care provider and patient advocate, and much more! The webinar will introduce the different components of the campaign, as well as walk participants through some quick tips to provide quality care at the intersections of mental and sexual/reproductive health.

Thursday, January 25, 2018 1:00 pm – 2:00pm
