Dr. Nicola Macpherson has been travelling and lecturing with Sea Courses since 2008. She completed Medical School in Ottawa in 1985 followed by a rotating internship at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC. Until 1989, she was a medical officer in the Canadian Forces at the National Defense Medical Centre in Ottawa. She finished her anaesthesia residency at UBC and became a Fellow of the Royal College in 1992. She worked for 12 years as an anaesthesiologist in Prince George and Maple Ridge, BC, including a brief stint in the Australian Outback. She returned to training as an R6 in Palliative Medicine in 2004-05. Since then, she has practiced full-time palliative medicine, initially throughout the Fraser Health Authority in BC. In 2014, realizing how hard it was to find locum coverage for palliative physicians in practice, she decided to become a locum in Regina, Calgary and in Fraser Health, so that colleagues can take much needed time off to recharge. She currently has faculty appointments in the Department of Medicine at UBC, and in Anaesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics at UBC, as well as Family Medicine, at the Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary. She developed and helped present three palliative workshops in Ghana (West Africa) in 2013 and 2015.
This course is designed for family physicians, specialists, and allied health care professionals. The aim is to provide evidence-based material, as well as practical and relevant clinical pearls that will be easy to implement into one’s own medical practice. Conference attendees will be invited to complete a pre-course Needs Assessment to assist the faculty with the development of their presentations.
