Thank you to our family physician community for your leadership and commitment during this evolving pandemic situation. The following is a brief notice regarding COVID-19 communications.
Given the critical importance of consistent messaging, FPRP and FPN communications will not be specific to COVID-19. Physicians are advised to rely on NLMA newsletters and the NLMA website for updates and current information. COVID-19 updates and advisories from Regional Health Authorities will also be typically distributed via the NLMA, given that not all family physicians are members of Family Practice Networks.
Questions and concerns related to COVID-19 can be directed to Jonathan Carpenter, Director, Communications and Public Affairs, NLMA (email@example.com) or reach out to your FPN for assistance in directing your question. FPN Chairs and Executive Directors participate in a weekly meeting with the NLMA and FPRP, where issues and questions can be brought forward.
FPRP is developing a brief newsletter for distribution over the next few days, including an update on timing and process related to financial support grants for EMR users enrolled in eDOCSNL. This is a priority. Please stay tuned.
All the best to you and your families during this difficult time.
