The Centre for Addiction for Mental Health teamed up with the Chiefs of Ontario (COO) and the Ontario First Nations Young Peoples Council to address the harmful use of prescription opioids among First Nation youth. Check out this video public service announcement!
For many years this annual event was coordinated by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) under the title: Ontario Methadone Prescribers' Conference.
For the last two years, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has collaborated with the CPSO to organize this event, and this year CAMH takes the leadership role.
There are two goals for this conference:
- The first is to highlight topics such as treatment approaches, harm reduction strategies, clinical guidelines and new evidence in the field of opioid use disorder.
- The second goal is to network with peers, which is particularly beneficial for people working in remote communities.
