This course will prepare learners to effectively and safely manage the treatment of clients receiving methadone or buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. The course will also promote interprofessional collaboration among the health care team involved in the delivery of opioid dependence treatment.
CAMH also offers the Opioid use disorder treatment (OUDT) online course, which has the same learning objective as the ODT core course. The OUDT course is offered only for Ontario pharmacists and New Brunswick nurse practitioners. Pharmacists should register for only one of the courses. Do not register for both courses.
The course uses a blended delivery format that includes online and face-to-face components.
The online component involves five self-paced modules. Learners with internet access can access the course at any time and from any location. Note: Learners must complete these online modules prior to attending the face-to-face workshop.
The one-day workshop takes place on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday). It is a case-based learning event that focuses on delivering treatment to clients through interprofessional collaboration.
