Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) Event Broadcasts

CPRI broadcasts events across Ontario over OTN. Some events are free. Others charge a nominal fee to recover costs associated with holding the event. See the CPRI Education Catalogue for more information.

If you have signed up for an event over OTN, remember to:

Mute your microphone so others in the videoconference cannot hear your in-room conversations.

Know your OTN camera number and event number so you can call OTN in the event of a problem with your videoconference.

Know who to contact at your organization for OTN-related issues.

If you need to call OTN directly please call 1 866 454 6861. 

Next Event: Thursday June 14th, 2018

Onset of the problems must begin before age five and cannot be due to another mental health or developmental problem, and the child must have reached a developmental age of at least 9 months old. Children with RAD cannot or do not seek or respond to any comfort, even when very distressed or hurt.
