Accidental Drug Poisoning Crisis

Community of Practice (CoP)

SJA’s CoP directly addresses the need for further support of front line workers who are coming face-to-face with the impact of the opioid crisis in their everyday lives.

A supportive, like-minded community exists for those who need it

St. John Ambulance began the National Summit Series in response to the need for further support of frontline workers. Prior to the Summit, respondents were asked what motivated them to want to join the Summit, what challenges they were currently experiencing with the opioid crisis, and what information they were seeking. As a result, over 180 participants attended the first pilot event.

Piloted by our National Summit Series, the ADPC-CoP is a national initiative created as an expansion of the Summit series.

With representatives from across Canada, the ADPC-CoP aims to combat the insulation of information throughout the country and connect people to discuss the opioid crisis, ideas, challenges, trends, and practices in a safe space.
