ADP Topics

The topic of the AD program changes on an annual basis. Previous topics have included the “Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines” and “Low Milk Supply”. This cycle of the program aims to enhance your knowledge and skills regarding the epidemiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and reporting of Lyme disease in Ontario.

Why Lyme disease? All tick surveillance indicators suggest that the current geographic range of blacklegged tick population is expanding in southern Ontario and will likely continue to do so as available habitat permits. The Sudbury and Manitoulin districts are not endemic areas for blacklegged ticks at this time, however these ticks have been found in the districts. Lyme disease diagnosis, testing and treatment in the early stages is crucial to mitigate the severe symptoms that could develop if the disease is not treated early.

This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 1.0 Mainpro+ credits.

Sessions on this topic are available until March 18, 2019.
