The Resiliency Curriculum is one of Resident Doctors of Canada’s (RDoC) flagship initiatives to support resident wellness. Originally designed as a series of in-person workshops, we’ve been busy adapting the curriculum materials to a virtual format during the COVID-19 pandemic.
RDoC has condensed the Resident Module workshop into a new, 1-hour webinar for residents. The webinar will cover all the same tools from the Resident Module – the Mental Health Continuum, the Big Four+ and the H.E.L.P. acronym for peer support. This session is designed to help residents identify early signs of distress and relevant early interventions, apply evidence-based skills to reduce stress and optimize performance, and recognize how and when to seek support.
Webinars are currently being scheduled for residents in two different ways:
“Open” sessions available for registration: these sessions will be scheduled regularly over the next few months and posted on our website here. All residents are welcome to sign up.
“Closed” sessions arranged for specific groups: these sessions are coordinated directly with the Faculty of Medicine in order to provide the webinar to a particular program or department. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about scheduling a webinar for your program.
We’re planning to get virtual Leadership Module webinars up and running soon too – stay tuned for more information.
