Health Professional Education – Opioid Use and Opioid Use Disorder (HPE-OUOUD) Project
The Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE-ACFTS) in partnership with the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada (AFPC), are pleased to announce the funding of a three-year inter-professional education project by Health Canada’s Substance Use and Addictions Program.
The project, titled Empowering the next generation of health care and social service professionals with knowledge, skills, tools and supports to address substance use issues in Canada will help ensure that future nurses, pharmacists, and social workers are prepared to enter the work force well-equipped to address issues related to substance use with current best practices in health promotion, prevention, harm reduction, and treatment.
