Opioid Safety Forum for Clinicians and Pharmacists
Are you a physician, pharmacist or dentist?
You are invited to the Opioid Safety Education Forum: Navigating the Changing Landscape. The forum will highlight opioid use and misuse as a public health and safety concern. This event will also provide an opportunity for you to increase your awareness of the new Patch for Patch legislation, opioid first-aid and evidence based strategies for the safe prescribing and dispensing of opioids.
Please join us as we work together for the health, well-being and safety of our York Region communities.
