Course Description

BETTER Prevention Practitioners (PPs) are health care professionals with enhanced skills in prevention and screening of cancer and chronic disease, including their common lifestyle risk factors.

Intended for previously trained PPs, this self-paced, on-demand re-certification course will provide PPs with a detailed overview of the updated clinical recommendations used in the BETTER program. New updates include:

- An extended age group - recommendations apply to patients 40 - 69 years of age;
- Updated recommendations for all areas previously within scope, as well as definitions for elevated risk; and
- An extended scope - primary prevention and screening of osteoporosis, secondary prevention of diabetes, and recommendations for cannabis use and vaping/e-cigarettes.

Learners will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained using case studies and knowledge checks and receive access to digital copies of the revised BETTER toolkit and newly developed resources through course materials and the PP Community of Practice.

Enrolment Fee

Upon successful completion of the course, learners will receive a Certificate of Completion and access to fillable PDF versions of the BETTER toolkit through the PP Community of Practice. Access to versions of the BETTER tools, electronic or otherwise, that are not described here is not included in the enrolment fee.
