Ottawa Curriculum for Perinatal Mental Health

June 26, 2024

The University of Ottawa, Office of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and the Department of Psychiatry are proud to present this 1/2-day in-person course at The Ottawa Civic Hospital, Amphitheatre.

2024 is the year of Perinatal Mental Health Guidelines!

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) and the Canadian Network for Mood & Anxiety Treatments (CANMAT) are both releasing the first Canadian guidelines on Perinatal Mental Health. We are pleased to host their first joint launch.

The focus of this year's course is on Evidence Based Stepped Perinatal Mental Health Care, with updates and clinical applications of the new SOGC and CANMAT guidelines. In live seminars, you will hear directly from the experts involved in the development of these guidelines. The morning closes with a comprehensive panel of community resource providers to showcase their integral roles in the stepped care model. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions directly to perinatal psychiatry experts.

 This course will be of interest to ALL perinatal care providers, including obstetricians, family doctors, psychiatrists, midwives, nurses, doulas, social workers, occupational therapists, psychotherapists, lactation consultants, and learners.
