International Overdose Awareness Day: Coming Together (Fort St. James)

  • This event has passed.

August 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Nurses from the Nak’azdli Health Center have partnered with Nak’azdli Wellness, Northern Health Public Health Nursing, Community Paramedics, The Key, Mental Health & Addiction Services along with community members to conduct a community event that will focus on the cause: to increase awareness of overdose and to acknowledge the grief for those who have been affected by overdose in some way.

With the provincial overdose emergency, we feel this is a critical time to educate community. We hope to make further partnerships with those who are at higher risk of overdose or who know those who may be at high risk of overdose, e.g. those living in our downtown core, family/friends/community members.

For more information on this International Overdose Awareness Day event, contact Stephanie Sutton at 250.570.1073 or healthnurse1@nakazdli.ca.

The Patient Voices Network has connected me to a community with the same drive to bring person- and family-centred care to the forefront. I am grateful for all opportunities I have been a part of thanks to PVN, which positively impacts patients like my sister and their caregivers. No matter how small, all patient engagement will help shape the future of health care and that I can stand behind
