Concurrent Disorders (CD) Learning Series

Information for Health Professionals

The Concurrent Disorder Learning Series is a comprehensive inventory of academic videos from provincial, national, and international subject matter/clinical experts. The Series is designed to support the clinical development of AMH’s diverse workforce in responding to the needs of individuals experiencing concurrent disorders.

Each academic video within the playlist is considered a Section 2 – Self-Learning Scanning Activity. Learners can claim 0.5 CME study credits per each video viewed.

Learners are encouraged to develop a Personal Learning Project (PLP). The number of hours you spend on your PLP should include the time spent in preparing for the learning activity, as well as your post-learning reflection time. Credits are claimed at a rate of 2.0 credits/ hour.

Non-physicians can email during the summer months (July/August) citing their total number of credits to obtain an annual Certificate of Participation. Physicians can claim directly through the Royal College Mainport ePortfolio.

Please complete the following short survey, CDSeriesSatisfactionSurvey, after viewing your selected video(s). Your feedback is of great value, as we continue to plan future recordings, to meet educational needs.
