RNAO’s Addressing Substance Use Champions Workshops: Registration now open

RNAO is thrilled to announce several upcoming free Addressing Substance Use Champions Workshops taking place across the province. Six foundational (level 1) and one advanced (level 2) workshop will begin in fall 2019.

The Addressing Substance Use Best Practice Champions Foundational (Level 1) workshop provides participants with an overview of introductory concepts related to providing safe, ethical and competent care in all clinical settings to clients who use substances. This workshop will focus on the Engaging Clients Who Use Substances Best Practice Guideline and will highlight foundational concepts related to understanding stigma, knowledge of licit and illicit substances, harm reduction and the social determinants of health.

The Addressing Substance Use Best Practice Champions Advanced (Level 2) workshop expands on knowledge and content delivered in the Addressing Substance Use Foundational Workshop and is directed to participants who have completed the level 1 workshop who wish to expand their knowledge of best practices related to substance use disorders. This workshop will focus on the Engaging Clients Who Use Substances Best Practice Guideline and will highlight the guideline recommendations related to in-depth screening, comprehensive assessment and pharmacological and psychosocial interventions.
