COVID-19 and MPS Events Update

By | Mailings, News

Update:

MPS has recently updated its website to include two new pages:

COVID-19 Mental Health Resources for the General Public.
COVID-19 Practice Resources for Psychologists (members only)

 

March 14 Update:

Dear MPS Members and Workshop Registrants

In light of the growing concerns regarding COVID-19 the MPS Board has voted to cancel our March 30, 2020 AGM.  Members who have already registered for this event will receive full refunds.  Annual reports will be sent out to our members later this month.

MPS has also decided to postpone our April 24 workshop entitled Assessing Allegations of Trauma in Civil and Forensic Contexts.  Those who have already registered for this event will receive a full refund.  We will provide an updated date as soon as it is available.

Please contact MPS Executive Director, Dr. Karen Dyck, C. Psych,, at executived@mps.ca if you should have any questions.

March 13 Update:

In consideration of the recent pandemic and potential concerns attendees may have regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Manitoba Psychological Society (MPS) would like to provide an update regarding the upcoming events planned for March 30 (MPS Members Annual General Meeting) and April 24 (Spring Workshop entitled Assessing Allegations of Trauma in Civil and Forensic Contexts).  We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and adhere to recommendations from government and health authorities regarding travel and meetings.  We will notify MPS members and registrants of any changes to these planned events.

The well-being of our presenters and attendees is paramount and we have taken measures to ensure a safe environment.  We have contacted the venues and have been provided with detailed information about the steps they are taking in accordance with current recommended precautions.  We have also revised our cancellation policies for both of the aforementioned events in order to encourage registrants to make health conscious decisions that take into consideration their own health status and risk factors.  We ask that individuals who are feeling ill remain at home.  Individuals who cancel their registration up to 3 days prior to the event will receive a full refund and those who cancel with less than 3 days notice will receive a credit to be used at future MPS events.  These credits will not expire.  We will also be encouraging participants to practice good hand hygiene and utilize low risk greetings (e.g., elbow bumps, waves, versus handshakes and hugs). 

At the time of this email the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) reported the overall risk for the general population in Canada remains low.  Individuals are encouraged to visit the PHAC website for additional information regarding symptoms, preventative measures, as well as to obtain the most up-to-date information regarding the status of COVID-19 (https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection.html).
