HSABC Webinar: Harm Reduction 101

June 8, 2021, 10:00 - 11:30 AM


In this two-part series, registered nurse Corey Ranger will be offering learners an opportunity to take a deeper dive into harm reduction, where it came from, and the values and principles that form the foundation of harm reduction work or practice. Learners in the first session will examine the principles of harm reduction and the many ways in which it is practiced. Learners will be asked to reflect on their own guiding values in relation to harm reduction, and identify ways in which harm reduction can be incorporated into their workplace.
