Opioid-related overdose deaths have been on the rise across Canada throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Programs implemented to address this crisis have been heavily challenged during the past year as a result of COVID 19. What can be done? This talk looks at the lessons we can learn from innovative practices currently being used in Western and Northern Europe.
