CADTH Lecture — Canada’s Opioid Crisis / Conférence de l’ACMTS — La crise des opioïdes au Canada

Livestream or in person

Summary

Dr. Hakique Virani will talk about the state of the opioid crisis and the connections between variables that make piecemeal approaches to supply and demand factors problematic. He will describe how the interventions required must take into account broader considerations that go beyond the clinical context of how we care for people living with pain or substance use disorder, or both. Dr. Virani will also outline the risks arising from changing substance hazards and discuss responsible risk mitigation. From a public health perspective, he will examine the critical gaps in our surveillance of substance use, morbidity and mortality, and delve into the considerations for population health and policy interventions in a time where drug poisoning has reached epidemic proportions
