Primary Care

 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN PRIMARY CARE 

The Canadian Urological Association now in its 70th year, continues to serve as the reference source of relevant and credible urologic information for patients and their families, urologists, other health care providers and the general public.

Through in-depth evaluations and peer group assessments the CUA has identified a need to educate family physicians on urological issues. From an educational standpoint, the CUA is well positioned to support non-urologist health professionals (such as family physicians, nursing educators, physician assistants, and pharmacists) with their continuing education requirements.

 CUA-CPD Mission Statement

As an approved accreditor of CPD activities, the CUA Office of Education's mission is to transfer knowledge into action through its various educational projects in order to:

  •          Foster the dissemination of cutting-edge research and best practices (Physicians)
  •          Improve patient care outcomes (Patients)
  •          Improve public awareness of urologic illnesses (Public)

 Many meetings are eligible for CFPC MainPro credits.
