CIRCA has partnered with the UBC CPD (Continuing Professional Development) in the Faculty of Medicine to create a program for primary care providers on autism and neurodiversity filled with useful activities and videos. This program includes two interactive modules designed to assist primary care providers to learn about the unique needs of their autistic patients and gain practical and useful strategies to adapt their practice to better serve this population. This program is FREE and is available to everyone. You do not have to be a primary care provider to take advantage of this learning opportunity.
Some components of the program are specific to British Columbia, Canada; however, the majority of the content is relevant to primary care practice in any location. Each module also includes supplemental resources that have been vetted by UBC CPD and CIRCA for quality assurance.
You can start and stop the modules at any time and the platform will remember where you left off. You will also have continued access to each module to use as an ongoing resource.
