Join us for a special edition of the webinar series to unpack the everchanging landscape of drug poisonings, emerging issues, and lessons learned from working in overdose prevention.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
