Practical Workshop: Identifying and Treating Opioid Use Disorder in Primary Care

The Collaborative Mentorship Networks for Chronic Pain and Addiction is travelling across the province to offer family physicians and their teams a fantastic learning opportunity.  After this free 3-hour workshop, you can immediately apply the following in your practice (with confidence):

  • identify patients with, or at risk of, Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)
  • engage in a conversation with your patients about OUD and treatment options
  • initiate Opioid Agonist Therapy (OAT) like buprenorphine/naloxone (and know what to do if/when it goes wrong)
  • prepare for and respond to relapse

This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Alberta Chapter for up to 3 Mainpro+ credits.

    • Hi Karen,

      Thank you for your question about the OUD Training. I wanted to confirm that the Edmonton workshop will be at the Doubletree by Hilton West Edmonton and it is open to all community pharmacists. You do not have to be connected to a PCN. If you are not connected to a PCN just list none or n/a in the PCN field on the registration form.

    • Hi Brenden,

      Thank you for your interest in this workshop. Our CMN OUD Practical Workshops are open to all primary health care team members including students. If you require any more information regarding our upcoming workshops feel free to contact mentorship@acfp.ca.

  1. Would I be able to call in via teleconference or skype for this course? I am unable tonattend in person but would be able to attend remotely.

  2. Would you recommend Panel Manager’s attend this workshop or will it be enough to attend the IF Opioid Workshop/Training scheduled for April 24th.
