AFMC's Response to Opioid Crisis: A Webinar Series Supporting a Community of Practice

The AFMC's Response to Opioid Crisis project is developing a Community of Practice for the Response to Opioids PGME/CPD Curriculum. As part of this Community of Practice, AFMC is offering a series of free webinars linked to the Curriculum topics. The series will cover the following topics: iOAT Injectable Opioid Agonist Treatment, Introduction to Medical Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder, Management of Chronic Pain in Diverse Patient Population, Physician Liability, and Chronic Pain and the Elderly.

The goal is to help develop a Community of Practice network to support education and mentorship, sharing of best practices in the management of cases for residents and practicing physicians; and for persons with lived and living experience with pain, substance use and addiction. This would provide support for those engaged in both clinical practice and teaching, as the needs of this audience are not currently addressed by other existing communities of practice. Anyone can join this Community of Practice and there is no fee to join. 

Unable to attend all sessions? We will record all Zoom sessions so that you can watch them on your own time.

  • Online sessions will be recorded and will be made available a week after the online session is completed. 

This Group Learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by Queen’s University for up to 6 Mainpro+ credits. This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and is approved by the Office of Continuing Professional Development, Queen’s University. You may claim a maximum of 6 hours.
