Completion of the Opioid Dependence Treatment Core Course is required.
The course is offered as an opportunity for physicians and nurse practitioners to practice methadone prescribing skills in an environment that imitates real-life situations, without any risk to real patients.
In Ontario this course is approved by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) as an alternative for the practicum component of the training required to prescribe methadone.
The simulation learning comprises cases of patients; each includes simulated appointments in different points of time in their treatment. Each learner will have the opportunity to actively participate in three sessions of simulation and observe six other sessions, followed by debrief. The debriefs of the sessions will be led by facilitators and include trainees, peers and simulators.
