  • The number of family physicians practising obstetrics in Canada is declining. (cmaj.ca)
  • 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 The proportion of family physicians and general practitioners in Canada who reported attending deliveries decreased from 68.4% in 1983 to 46.1% in 1988. (cmaj.ca)
  • 3 According to the 1997 Janus Project survey of the College of Family Physicians of Canada 4 (a project involving periodic national surveys of family physicians), 20% of all Canadian family physicians provided intrapartum care (i.e., delivered babies) in that year. (cmaj.ca)
  • The reasons given by physicians for not practising obstetrics include disruption of personal and professional life, fear of malpractice suits and cost of protection against such suits, inadequate monetary reimbursement, and lack of confidence or concerns about insufficient training. (cmaj.ca)
  • As family physicians age, they discontinue intrapartum care to avoid the physical toll of late-night deliveries and the stress of managing potential complications. (cmaj.ca)
  • In the past, this shift did not pose a problem, as young family physicians entering the practice filled the gap. (cmaj.ca)
  • Do family physicians with emergency medicine certification actually practise family medicine? (cmaj.ca)
  • Since 1982 the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) has offered a certification program in emergency medicine for family physicians. (cmaj.ca)
  • According to the college, this program aims to help family physicians deepen their skills in an area of clinical practice that is integral to family medicine. (cmaj.ca)
  • Do family physicians with emergency medicine certification actually practise family medicine, or do they instead practise as if they were emergency medicine specialists? (cmaj.ca)
  • Twenty-two physicians in non-fee-for-service, non-shadow billing practices were excluded. (cmaj.ca)
  • Of the 345 family physicians with emergency medicine certification included in the study, 194 (56%) were in the "almost all" or "mostly" emergency medicine categories ( Table 1 ). (cmaj.ca)

  • Of the 85 physicians who graduated from medical school between 1989 and 1996, 31 (36%) were in the "almost all emergency medicine" category and 38 (45%) in the "mostly emergency medicine" category in their first year of practice. (cmaj.ca)
  • The objective is to have family physicians with extra emergency medicine skills. (cmaj.ca)
  • This is particularly true among young family physicians with a CCFP(EM) entering practice directly from residency training. (cmaj.ca)
  • Family physicians without a CCFP(EM) working part-time in emergency departments are gradually being replaced by those with a CCFP(EM) who tend to have full emergency department workloads. (cmaj.ca)
  • Why are family physicians with emergency medicine certification choosing to practise emergency medicine full time? (cmaj.ca)
  • One possibility is that they had no intention of practising family medicine and chose the CCFP(EM) program because it is shorter than the emergency specialist program offered by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. (cmaj.ca)
  • 3 Another possibility is that family physicians without emergency medicine certification are leaving emergency medicine and those with such certification are being asked to fill the void. (cmaj.ca)
  • The physicians who are leaving emergency medicine may be doing so because of lifestyle reasons, because their emergency skills are not being valued or because the physician population is aging 4 and physicians tend to relinquish their emergency medicine practice as they grow older. (cmaj.ca)
