You’re invited for EHN Canada’s next educational webinar:

Managing Acute Opioid Withdrawal

With Dr. Speranza Dolgetta, MD, PhD, CCFP, Medical Director, Bellwood Health Services

Drug overdoses have claimed the lives of more than 20,000 Canadians since 2016 (The Globe and Mail). As a network of facilities specializing in the treatment of substance use disorders, trauma, and mental illness, we have seen the toll that the opioid crisis has taken and continues to take on the patients we see coming through our doors. The problem has only been compounded by the challenges people have faced throughout this pandemic. Join us for an insightful webinar on opioid withdrawal and treatment approaches with Dr. Speranza Dolgetta, Medical Director of Bellwood Health Services, who is on the front lines with medical and clinical staff every day.

The learning points in this webinar include:

  • Assessing the signs and symptoms of opioid withdrawal
  • Approaches to detox and medication-assisted management
  • Minimizing the risks of opioid overdose

Date: July 22, 2021 – 12pm EST, 9am PST
Duration: 45 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A discussion
Cost: COMPLIMENTARY
