Session Description: 

As a follow-up to our opioid presentation in the spring, RxA and ACP are offering a panel presentation exploring the issues pharmacists might face related to substance and harm reduction. This harm reduction focused program is aimed at helping pharmacists discover communication strategies to assist in the building and maintenance of professional relationships with patients requiring harm reduction measures. Pharmacists can learn about interdisciplinary collaboration, stigma, the ethical aspects of care in harm reduction, and how to apply harm reduction principles in their practice. Finally, the interactive and patient-centred session will also review the various harm reduction medications and treatment options used in opioid dependence.
