PARTICIPATION The Benefits of Participation We recently asked several Committee members what they enjoy about their work at the College DR. BRIAN BURKE Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (ICRC) Member Psychiatry practice. I find I’ve learned a lot on the mental health panels What led you to becoming involved with the ICRC? by them. I was mostly attracted to becoming a part of the CPSO as so much of what the College does was a mystery to me. I was very interested in finding out more about the processes. I found most of what we see at the ICRC is actually very good I was also post-graduate director for psychiatry in Windsor and I wanted to be able to help our residents avoid as well as on the general panels as to what constitutes state of the art practice. I’ve also learned and understood the College processes much better and I am much less mystified Mostly I’ve enjoyed the collegiality as well as interactions with peers, legal experts and investigators who are leaders in their fields. I look forward to our meetings to share views and to improve my understanding of how medicine works administratively as well as academically in centres outside of showing up in [the discipline summaries} in Dialogue! Windsor. What do you most enjoy about being a member of the ICRC? my peers. I think that this has been the best educational I definitely would recommend ICRC participation to experience I’ve had in my career. ISSUE 3, 2019 DIALOGUE 25
