Hey there, thanks for visiting your CMS Tutorial guide. If you’ve received the link to this page, it means that you’re on your way to getting a fantastic new website!

The purpose of this page is to help give you an idea of all of the different ways we can layout content on your site. We use a Panel Concept, and you’ll be able to view the various options below.

Don’t worry; we will take care of ensuring your new site is both visually attractive and professional. This area is just a hub to help you during your content creation process. If you have any questions or need a little direction feel free to reach out to your account manager, and they will be able to help walk you through the process!

Panel 1: Standard Panel

Our Standard Panel is one of the most diverse panel options we have available. It can be used to create buttons or links, upload PDF’s and supporting documents or any other information you’d like to place here. 

Button   Button with Icon

The formatting options available here are also complex. We will upload all of the options so that it’s easy for you to use when you’re updating all of your own content.

Panel 3: Call to Action

Subtext for Call to Action panel is styled like this.

Panel 4: Standard Panel With Tabs

Tab One Content

The standard panel tab concept was created to help our users split up content while keeping the page visually enjoyable for visitors. 

  • You can place in bullet points
  • Attach photos and videos
  • Create a table for information

The button tab names can be adjusted, so if you have a wide variety of services your company offers you can place it all on one page and users can easily browse through that information. 

Tab Two Content

They can be utilized in a multitude of ways and can also be customized to fit your brand!

As displayed below, embedding a picture or video is no problem at all and can be a powerful tool to help compliment your content. As with a standard panel adding in links, buttons or directing the user to find out more information is all possible in this panel.

Panel 5: Parallax Panel Insert

This is a Parallax Panel!

This panel type should be reserved for a short eye catching blurb of information. As you can see, the words stay in place while the image scrolls behind it. We recommend around 85 - 100 characters in this section if possible. If you need assistance with a background image feel free to reach out to your account manager and they can help you choose one.

Another great addition is that the parallax panel allows for a button which can be a URL link, a phone number or email. Keep this in mind as it’s great for helping with lead generation!

Panel 7: Side by Side (Video)

Here is another example of a Side by Side but this time with a video on the right hand side!

You can envision a similar concept as above, but this time you can place a relevant YouTube or Vimeo video here to help users understand the point you are making.

Pandemics – Catalysts of Change

Posted on July 15, 2021 by Dr. Lauren Bilinsky

We are now the “pandemic generation” of resident physicians. Like those generations before us who were shaped by major world events – Spanish Flu, international wars, AIDS – our careers will be shaped by the cultural and technological changes that have swept us up over the past year and a half.

Panel 10: FAQs

Are there any rules about when a service has to notify resident physicians of the on-call schedule?

According to the Resident Physician Agreement, resident physicians should receive or have access to the call schedule a week before the rotation begins, although updates can be made to the schedule at any time. It should be noted that many programs create schedules more than a week in advance but it really depends on the service.

Do resident physicians get a day in lieu if their call shift starts the day before a named holiday and ends on the named holiday?

Resident physicians do not get a day in lieu if their call shift extends into a Named holiday – only if it starts on a Named Holiday.

In recognition of working into Named Holidays, all Resident Physicians are entitled to four (4) flex days off each Appointment Year without loss of pay. These flex days are not part of the vacation entitlement. Flex days do not carry forward.

For the purposes of ensuring that resident physicians do not work more than 2 weekends per block or 3 weekends in a 5-weekend block, what constitutes a weekend?

  • Friday nights
  • Saturday & Sunday
  • Named holidays

While Friday nights are considered a part of the weekend for scheduling purposes, call shifts that commence on Friday are remunerated at the weekday rate. Only call shifts commencing on Saturday, Sunday, or a Named Holiday are remunerated at the weekend rate.

Since call maximums are determined by days on service during a block, what constitutes an off-service day?

Off service days not to be included in call maximum calculations include any time the resident physician is away on vacation (inclusive of the weekend prior to or following scheduled vacation as per Article 20.05), Maternity/Parental Leave, Educational Leave, Exam Leave, Special Leave, Compassionate Leave, Bereavement Leave, and Sick Leave.

Days that are NOT considered off service include named holidays, flex days, winter break, float days, and academic half (or full) days. These days are considered ‘on service’ for call maximum calculations.

What is a switched call stipend? (S – Edmonton time sheets, S – Calgary time sheets)

Switched call stipend is paid for a scheduled home call shift during which a resident physician has spent at least four hours of the call shift in hospital and at least one of these hours is after midnight and before 6 a.m. OR more than six (6) hours in hospital during the call period.

Switched call stipend is paid at the rate of in-house call, but counted as home call when determining call frequency maximums; it is designated as an “s” on on-call time sheets.

To be eligible for the post-call day the individual would need to work after midnight. This post call day is not guaranteed (like in-house call) but needs to be requested.
