We are pleased to announce that CAMH offers now an online course: Opioid Use Disorder Treatment, which has the same learning objectives as the ODT Core Course. Unlike our core course, this online version has no face-to face component. Pharmacists who complete this course will be in compliance with the Ontario College of Pharmacists' policy regarding required training.
Pharmacists should have the necessary knowledge, skills and judgement to provide MMT in accordance with the Opioid Policy, prior to engaging in this practice. The Designated Manager (DM) and at least one staff pharmacist of community pharmacies dispensing methadone must complete mandatory education and training.
Mandatory Initial Training
Nurse Practitioners in New Brunswick who complete this course will meet the requirement of the nurses association of New Brunswick for training on prescribing methadone for dependence.
In these course, the instructions for methadone prescribing are aligned with the Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program Standards and Clinical Guidelines, published by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) in 2011.
Instructions for dispensing methadone are aligned with the Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) and Dispensing Policy of the Ontario College of Pharmacists (OCP).
For clinicians practicing outside of Ontario, links for other provinces guidelines and policies will be included within the course.
Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto
