An Innovative Approach to Delivering Health Care To People With Pain & Addiction
Who We Are
The AMN-P&A is a community of practice linking groups of primary health care providers (mentees) directly to a mentor (pain/addiction experts) to help manage individuals living with chronic pain and addiction.
We are happy to announce that in partnership with Doctors Nova Scotia, the AMN-P&A is pleased to be offering the Safer Opioid Prescribing Program once again. Developed and presented by the University of Toronto, the course is evidence-based, free of industry conflicts of interest and available to physicians, medical residents and nurse practitioners who prescribe opioids.
Given the continued need to contain the spread of COVID-19 and your focus on critical work to support the health of our population, we will continue to defer all in-person programs at this time. Though it is difficult to predict how the situation will unfold over the weeks and months to come, we expect that in-person programs wouldn’t likely be appropriate or possible until at least this fall.
We are currently exploring options to provide support to the AMN-P&A membership in other ways. Please stay tuned
