The Safer Opioid Prescribing Program includes a Webinar Series (3 webinars), followed by an in-person Skill Development workshop.


Safer Opioid Prescribing is pleased to announce it is one of the first educational programs in the country to offer a curriculum that reflects the Canadian Guideline for Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain released in May 2017.

As of June 2017, our three webinars and capstone workshop integrate the Guideline recommendations to ensure that physicians and health care providers have the most up to date information to improve their opioid prescribing and chronic pain management.
