Please join us on May 17th at 12:00pm for a presentation on opioid use and naloxone. During this session, we will discuss the “why?” of recommended harm reduction techniques and the important aspects of responding to an opioid poisoning. By the end of the presentation, we hope that participants will be able to
Describe what an opioid is, and why there is a focus on the opioid poisoning crisis
Identify risk factors for an opioid poisoning, and strategies to minimize them
Articulate the steps in responding to an opioid poisoning
This presentation will be led by Charlotte Boone (she/her). Charlotte obtained her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Toronto and is currently completing her PGY-1 Pharmacy residency at CAMH. She has experience in a variety of opioid use disorder treatment and harm reduction settings.
The Sunrise Challenge presented by Sun Life invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.
