Opioids Across the Lifespan – Transition-aged Youth (Part Two of a Three-part Series)

Thu, 2017-07-20 11:00 - 12:00
About this Event:

Opioids are commonly prescribed pharmacological intervention used to treat physical pain, and Canada is now the second highest consumer of opioids in the world. While opioids may address physical and/or indirectly psychological pain for some people, they can also be dangerous (even when taken as prescribed), and can lead to problematic opioid use, overuse, dependence, overdose, or death. This 3-part webinar series will examine opioids across the lifespan starting with the early years (maternal/prenatal), transition aged youth and lastly, older adults.

Goals:

  • Understand the risks and harms of opioid use and misuse for different populations.
  • Understand treatment options for working with different populations.
  • Explore case-based examples that illustrate the unique considerations of working with different populations.

Presenter(s) and Credentials:

  • Dr. Kim Corace - Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre
  • Lori Naylor and Stephen Chatterton - Breakaway Addiction Services
