Continuing education options available for Alaska’s health care providers

March 3, 2017

Alaska health care providers looking for local continuing education options are now able to participate in the education options offered by the Alaska Federal Health Care Partnership (AFHCP). Featuring guest speakers from across Alaska and the U.S., the AFHCP quarterly offerings are a convenient way for all physicians and health care providers to gain valuable and timely knowledge to improve patient care throughout our state.

ANTHC is a member of the Alaska Federal Health Care Partnership network, which means all Tribal health partner organizations are able to participate in-person or online with sponsored enrollment when they register. Beyond AFHCP partners, additional seats are available for all Alaska physicians and health care providers to learn about emerging health issues that impact all Alaskans.

Upcoming one-day sessions include:

  • Patient Safety, Provider/Support Staff Fatigue, and Second Victims with Dr. Beverly Thornberg and Cynthia Lightner, both located with the Air Force Medical Operations Agency. The sessions will be held March 29 in Anchorage, March 30 in Fairbanks and March 31 in Kodiak.
  • Pain Spectrum: Prescription Abuse, Misuse, Selling of Opioids, Chronic Pain Management & Neurology with Dr. Timothy Dawson, Director of Pain Medicine and Functional Restoration Center at the Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, and Dr. Anthony Mariano, Director of Pain Psychology for the entire Pacific Northwest, also located at VA Puget Sound Health Care System. The sessions will be held May 9 in Kodiak, May 11 in Fairbanks and May 12 in Anchorage.
