 Welcome to Practising Well

As a family doctor, you need access to information, knowledge, and experts to support you in providing the best care possible for your patients with their mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain. These are challenging conditions, and treating them has only grown more demanding and complex during this pandemic.

Practising Well is here to provide that support. It is an active and engaged online community that gives you access to a deep well of knowledge to make your practice easier today, and to improve it in the future.

It’s an online resource. A coach. A guide. A place to teach, to learn and to connect with your peers.

A place you can quickly get what you need, and return to over and over again, regardless of where you are in your career.

It’s a flexible community and self-guided resource that is there to give you what you need at any given time.

At the core of Practising Well are three distinct, yet interrelated, parts:

  • The Practising Well Community of Practice: A Community of Practice by family physicians, for family physicians, to connect in real time with, and learn from, others who are working with patients to address their mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain. Anchored by monthly live, interactive virtual sessions, the conversation continues through an online discussion board. 
  • The Practising Well Information Exchange [coming soon]: An easy-to-navigate online repository of information on treating patients in the areas of mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain, designed to help you quickly find what you’re looking for. 
  • The Practising Well Peer-to-Peer Connect [coming soon]: An opportunity to partner with another family physician in a one-on-one setting, and share experiences and best practices in the treatment of mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain.
