CBD residents will progress through the four Stages of training. Promotion will be based on completion of Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for each Stage. The EPA Map outlines the rotations and the EPAs most relevant to each rotation. The EPA Guide can be found here and our pocket guide can be found here.
Each Tuesday is Academic Full Day. The calendar lists the learning activities for each day. In addition, residents participate in the monthly Journal Club. The CanMEDS Observer Program will continue in CBD; the mentor will use EPAs instead of the former CanMEDS Observer form.
Competence By Design (CBD) is an initiative by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada to transform all specialist training to a competency based model. Emergency Medicine is proud to be among the first specialties to make the change on July 1, 2018. Trainees starting the Emergency Medicine residency on July 1, 2018, and afterwards will be in the CBD system.
The University of Alberta, its buildings, labs, and research stations are primarily located on the traditional territory of Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, and Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe nations; lands that are now known as part of Treaties 6, 7, and 8 and homeland of the Métis. The University of Alberta respects the sovereignty, lands, histories, languages, knowledge systems, and cultures of First Nations, Métis and Inuit nations.
If you sell any CBD products, no matter how few, you must be in the CBD Program. However, you may qualify for a custom rate if CBD is only a small portion of your overall sales.
While we can’t provide legal advice, or a list of allowed or unallowed terms or phrases, we built our review process on FDA and other relevant guidelines. For example, we don’t allow any claims that your CBD products may be used to cure, treat, or aid conditions such as anxiety, inflammation, depression, PTSD, ADHD, cancer, or other health conditions. For more information, we encourage you to review the FDA website and warning letters that the FDA has sent to CBD businesses regarding claims made about their products.
During our review, we may ask for additional information and documentation. To ensure that your application is processed quickly, please provide the requested information promptly to expedite your review process.
Once you apply, we will immediately begin our review process and request relevant documentation, such as information about your business, item descriptions, and lab reports for your products. All current and future Square Sellers must apply for the CBD program to be approved to sell CBD.
If I’m not a CBD business, and carry only a few CBD products, do I still need to be in the program?
Examples of information you will need to have on hand for your application include general information about your business, including but not limited to, transaction amounts, your refund policy, and recent bank statements. You should also have a description of your CBD products, your online store and social media accounts, and a certificate of analysis confirming Delta 9-THC percentages for each item.
We recommend merchants familiarize themselves with Square’s Payment Terms to ensure they are not selling prohibited products and services, and promptly and fully respond to any requests for information sent by Square.
Square works with multiple federally regulated and licensed acquiring banks.
What is Square’s stance on medical claims associated with CBD?
All verification emails or requests for information will be sent to the email address associated with your Square account.
Our team will then reach out to you directly when your application review is completed, which usually takes 2-3 business days.
