As communities across Canada struggle to deal with an unprecedented number of opioid deaths, Ontario’s hospitals and primary care providers are changing the way they treat substance misuse and are providing better support to people living with addictions issues.
People living with drug and alcohol addiction often don’t have a coordinated plan for recovery. Many find themselves in and out of treatment centres or worse – in an emergency department following an overdose.
META:PHI is aiming to change this.
Join us for the next Quality Rounds Ontario on May 24, 12 noon at Women’s College Hospital or participate online to find out how addictions care can be more coordinated and integrated, and how emergency department visits can be reduced by providing patients with more holistic and seamless care.
Dr. Meldon Kahan and Adopting Research to Improve Care (ARTIC) collaborators will discuss their experiences spreading and improving access to an integrated, evidence-based model of care for addiction treatment, and the impact on outcomes.
