Lessons learned from supervised consumption and overdose prevention sites in Canada

A webinar in partnership with the Dr. Peter Centre.

This webinar will focus on lessons learned from a national teleconference network for supervised consumption site (SCS) and overdose prevention site (OPS) service providers.

Initiated in September 2017, this teleconference network serves as a forum for current and prospective service providers to share information and promising practices related to SCS and OPS. To date, more than 60 individuals from 20 Canadian cities have participated. The teleconference network seeks to assist communities in building their capacity to offer SCS/OPS by sharing challenges and innovations among service providers.

This webinar will engage participants in a discussion with experts on key themes related to the development of an SCS or an OPS.

Moderator: Amanda Giacomazzo, CATIE
