How will Artificial Intelligence affect the work of Canada's family doctors?

About this event

Join us in our six-part monthly webinar series that will help develop your understanding of AI, the ways it is already being used in practice, and the potential of AI and other technologies to change the ways we learn, work and care for our patients.

Hosted by Dr. Andrew Pinto, Director of Upstream Lab and DEEP Network, and presented in partnership with the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), this webinar series features leaders in our discipline in Canada with expertise in machine learning, natural language processing, ethics, and AI research.

In this second webinar Dr. Anders Lenskjold will be discussing the use of machine learning to solve primary care challenges, and provide valuable insight through examples of real life and new research.

Dr. Anders Lenskjold is a Danish trained physician with clinical experience in Family, Rural, and Emergency Medicine, Trauma, and Orthopedic Surgery. Lenskjold is also working as a Medical Informatics Consultant with research and health tech industry experience in Machine Learning in healthcare. He is especially interested in advancing healthcare with the appropriate use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies and guiding healthcare providers to limit harm caused by overscreening, overdiagnosing, and overtreating patients.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Define ML, how its processed, and understand the difference between supervised vs. unsupervised learning
  2. Describe how ML is currently applied, and being developed for primary care
  3. Describe the problems surrounding use of ML, and improve confidence in critically appraising ML tools
  4. Evaluate how care, compassion, and continuity in family practice can be strengthened as these innovations are introduced.

This group learning activity has been certified by the CFPC for one Mainpro+ credit per session. Webinars will be available in English only.
