Event Details

Dear Member,

The Division received an update that Abbotsford will be receiving 40 new Syrian refugees between mid October and December. To support care for refugees, the Division is hosting a workshop on Oct. 25 on the post arrival health assessment (PAHA), which is billable under the Interim Federal Health program. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Mei-ling Wiedmeyer, Bridge Clinic Physician and Clinical Instructor, UBC. Dr. Wiedmeyer will provide an overview of the PAHA and billing, and best practices for providing culturally sensitive care. Drs. Boparai and Liu will discuss the PAHA in Abbotsford.

​This will be an interactive workshop with discussion and Q&A.


Dinner will be at 5:30pm, followed by the workshop from 6-8pm. You will receive sessional time compensation.

Abbotsford Division of Family Practice

Abbotsford Division is one of 34 Divisions of Family Practice across the province. Each was created by doctors for doctors, and focuses on the priority issues specific to our individual communities. Our goals are to enhance patient care throughout the front-line health care system, to build a network of support for our family doctor colleagues, and to create healthier communities. The Division is an independent, not-for-profit society, funded by the Government of British Columbia and Doctors of BC. We work in partnership with the local municipalities, community agencies, and the Fraser Health Authority.
