In March, 2018, we held an educational event on the theme of 'Destigmatizing the Opioid crisis'. We are committed to continuing to educate ourselves on this crisis as we move into acting on the issues that exacerbate it. With that in mind, we have organized a tour of the new Westshore AIDS Vancouver Island Health Clinic.
The centre offers Opiate Substitution Treatment (OST) in a low barrier setting and also offers support and referrals to assist patients to meet their health care needs and goals. Check out http://avi.org/westshore for more information on the clinic’s services.
We will have a chance to talk with staff and patients and receive training in administering naloxone, a medicine that saves lives by reversing the effects of an overdose
