Opioid Addiction and Substitution Therapy Online Modules
The Opioid Addiction and Substitution Therapy Online Modules indicated below are acceptable for meeting the Ontario College of Pharmacists required training update. Updates are required at minimum every five years as indicated in the Ontario College of Pharmacists' "Methadone Maintenance Treatment and Dispensing Policy". Please note, to complete the update requirement, the module "Policies guiding methadone dispensing in Ontario" must be completed, along with four other modules.
Please also note that these modules do not satisfy initial training requirements and do not replace the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Opioid Dependence Treatment course, which Designated Managers and pharmacists are required to complete in order to dispense methadone as outlined in the Ontario College of Pharmacists' "Methadone Maintenance Treatment and Dispensing Policy".
This complimentary program is made available through funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
