COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS REGARDING PHYSICIAN HEALTH PROGRAM - College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba
CPSM’s Physician Health Program will continue to operate and telephone in-take interviews will be scheduled on an as-needed basis. The expectation that all members report a change in their health status should continue even in view of the current situation.
The College operates its own Physician Health Program with the following objectives:
· Early identification and monitoring of a member (including those who are not physicians) who has a health issue which has the potential to adversely impact the member’s ability to practice medicine safely;
· Adoption of a remedial approach to dealing with a member who has health issues where the member is cooperative in the process, has insight into the member’s own health status and is compliant with treatment and rehabilitation;
· Collaboration with a member who has health issues and the member’s care givers with the goal of creating an environment in which the member can practice medicine safely.
