Clinical Roundtable Webinar – December 15, 2022

Join ICRAS-CRISM to discuss the clinical management of prescription opioid use disorders!

The OPTIMA Clinical Trial webinar series aims to bring together clinicians from all fields in a discussion on implementing and optimizing flexible models of care for opioid-related disorders. The regional roundtable, on December 15 at 12:00 pm EST, will be hosted by CRISM in collaboration with the CRISM Quebec-Atlantic cluster and CHUM! We will hear from a multidisciplinary panel of clinical experts, including principal investigator Dr. Didier Jutras-Aswad, physicians Dr. Suzanne Brissette and Dr. Marie-Ève Goyer, pharmacist Pierre-Benoît Tremblay, and nurse Isabelle Tetu, with moderator Julie Charbonneau.

After presenting the results of the national OPTIMA trial, which ran from 2017 to 2020, this multidisciplinary panel of clinicians will discuss factors to consider, barriers, and benefits surrounding prescribing unsupervised doses of CAT, as in BUP/NX treatment, in the Quebec setting. In this discussion, the panel will explore next steps to optimize and expand flexible care models for AOT in clinical practice.
