Welcome to Practising Well Peer to Peer Connect: a way for you to partner with another family physician, one-on-one, to help you solve problems and increase your confidence caring for patients with complex mental health and substance use disorders and chronic pain, as well as supporting you as you engage in this challenging work.

Peer to Peer Connect Information Session

The next Information Session will be held on Monday, April 4 from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Join Dr. Javed Alloo (Toronto) and Dr. Bryan MacLeod (Thunder Bay) to learn about:

  • Stress and burnout as they relate to empathic distress and caregiver fatigue
  • Tips to assist with caring for others while managing own personal distress
  • Opportunities available through Peer to Peer Connect and how the educational relationship between Peer Guides and Peer Learners can contribute to personal and professional wellbeing

Peer Learner Application

Practising Well has been designed to provide educational support to family physicians. It is not a clinical consultation support for specific patients.

Become a Peer Guide

We’re looking for family physicians to be Peer Guides and share their experience and expertise in mental health, substance use disorder and/or chronic pain with their colleagues. 

As a Peer Guide (formerly known as Mentors), you’re the foundation of a program to support practical and relevant implementation of learning in primary care. 

If you love to collaborate, and have the drive to support your colleagues and help them achieve their learning goals, whatever that looks like, we would love to have you on board. 

Interested in joining us as a Peer Guide? Review the Role Description and contact us for more information.

Peer to Peer Connect is part of the Practising Well initiative, designed to be flexible to your needs, and give you access to information, knowledge and experts in the way that suits you best, regardless of where you are in your career.
