Faculty Peer Leader Network
The Faculty Peer Leader Network is the next step to prepare up-and-coming clinicians to understand and practice in a digital environment. The Faculty Peer Leader Network creates a collaborative and engaging environment to prepare a new generation of physicians, pharmacists and nurses for practice in modern technology-enabled clinical environments. The Faculty Peer Leader Network leverages the Peer Leader Network model to provide faculty with support and mentorship in integrating informatics, e-resources and digital health core competencies into the curricula.
Currently, Infoway has established a Faculty Peer Leader Network in conjunction with the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada (AFPC), the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC).
