HSABC Webinar: Safe Supply 101
July 14, 2021, 9:00 - 10:30 AM
In the first part of the safe supply series, participants will:
- Learn how to navigate supporting their clients/community members in accessing safe supply.
- Develop a better understanding of how to advocate for clients experiencing issues related to safe supply.
- Understand how to support clients who are using illicit substances and need to self-isolate/quarantine due to COVID19 symptoms and/or awaiting test results.
- Be given the opportunity to ask questions related to safe supply access, and troubleshoot some of the issues they may have encountered in the early days of this new initiative.
- Discuss next steps related to de-medicalizing safe supply and decriminalization of substance use.
Throughout both parts of the safe supply series, Corey will provide a number of existing and new resources for learners to take away and bolster their learning experience.
