Opioid use disorder is one of the most challenging forms of addiction facing the health care system in British Columbia and a major driver of the recent surge in illicit drug overdose deaths in the province. In the context of the current public health emergency, there is an urgent need for a provincial evidence-based education on the full range of treatment options available for adults and youth with varying presentations of opioid use disorder.
UBC CPD, in partnership with the BC Centre for Substance Use (BCCSU), has developed an online course intended for all BC physicians, nursing and allied health professionals, and other care providers involved in the treatment of individuals with opioid use disorder. Designed with busy professionals in mind, the course articulates the BCCSU’s Provincial Guidelines for the Clinical Management of Opioid Use Disorder through interactive content, videos and case studies.
The Provincial Opioid Addiction Treatment Support Program is tailored to two learner groups. Follow the link that correlates to your practice:
