Extreme Heat Events – Free Accredited Program Online

Ongoing Online Educational Program

The duration and frequency of extreme heat events is on the rise in Canada, and with them, increased risk for heat-related illnesses. McMaster University, together with Health Canada, the Ontario College of Family Physicians and the Clean Air Partnership, have designed a free, accredited program to give health care providers the training and tools to better prevent and manage heat-related illnesses.

The Extreme Heat Events program will teach you some of the key issues around heat-related illness; work through the learning module and four case studies; download patient and provider resources and brochures; look for expert blog posts throughout the summer; and participate in our discussion forum.
