Opioids & Opioid Use Disorder

AFPC has partnered with the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE-ACFTS) to develop education guidelines, protocols, an extensive 8-module e-Resource and other tools to help ensure that future nurses, pharmacists and social workers are prepared to enter the work force well-equipped to address issues related to opioid use and opioid use disorder. These resources support best practices in health promotion, prevention, harm reduction and treatment. 

The Opioid Use and Opioid Use Disorder Education e-Resource, for social work, pharmacy and registered nursing programs, is available at: https://ououd.casn.ca/. This OUOUD YouTube video highlights the eResource. 

See the Opioid project and e-Resource pages on AFPC's website for more info.
