Health Professional Education – Opioid Use and Opioid Use Disorder (HPE-OUOUD) Project

The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN), in partnership with the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada (AFPC) and the Canadian Association for Social Work Education – Association canadienne pour la formation en travail social (CASWE-ACFTS) have created Interprofessional Education Guidelines on Opioid Use and Opioid Use Disorder

With funding support from Health Canada, CASN, AFPC and CASWE-ACFTS are working together to ensure that nursing, pharmacy and social work graduates enter the workforce well equipped with relevant, evidence-informed knowledge to address issues related to opioid use and opioid use disorder.

To achieve this goal, the newly published national, consensus-based interprofessional guidelines will serve to promote and guide curricular change in Canadian schools/faculties of nursing, pharmacy and social work in this important area. The learning outcomes identified in this document provide targets for graduates of these entry-level baccalaureate programs related to opioid use and opioid use disorder across the prevention, health promotion, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery continuums at primary, secondary, and tertiary care levels.
