Spring has sprung but October will be here soon and with it the Ontario ACT Association’s biannual conference happening October 26-28, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. They recently posted a call for workshop and poster proposals for ACTT III Beyond the Standards.
There aren’t enough ACT-specific events out there and this conference is a rare opportunity. The location is ideal for those on both sides of the falls to attend. Bonus is that an American dollar gets you $1.30 worth of Loonies (yes, that really is how we refer to the Canadian dollar coin). Add visiting a few of the wineries in the Niagara area and you have a perfect conference/holiday combo.
Even better than just attending consider submitting a poster or workshop proposal (click to view the pdf for workshop and poster submissions). Maybe have a look at my Aug 2014 blog titled Measuring Up.
My favorite ACT ethics article-see Bill’s Barbeque – is by two Ontarian ACT physician researchers (at least they were in 2006). I still think teams should use this article once a year – take just a few of the case scenarios and add/embellish based on your team’s experiences.
Maybe see you in the fall.
