Piloted by our National Summit Series, The Accidental Drug Poisoning Crisis – Community of Practice is an expansion of the Summit series and a national initiative that aims to connect people with lived and living experience, frontline workers, and anyone impacted by the opioid crisis to discuss ideas, challenges, and knowledge of current trends and practices in a safe space. Events will take place online once a month, providing an accessible space to share resources and create community-based solutions.
ADPC-CoP events geared towards specific communities or issues that will accommodate up to 100 participants will take place monthly over zoom with larger scale events taking place trimonthly starting July 27th. The larger events will accommodate up to 500 participants and offer opportunities to hear from keynote speakers, participate in workshops, and engage in personal development.
The ADPC-CoP program is overseen by an advisory committee comprised of subject matter experts including people with lived and living experience, and frontline workers to ensure the content being delivered is both relevant and accurate. With representatives from each corner of Canada, the ADPC-CoP aims to combat the insulation of information throughout the country and create a ‘connective tissue’ to bring people together.
