    Understanding Opioids:
    Methods for Prevention & Response

    More and more people are being poisoned by opioids. We need all hands on deck to turn that around.

    Learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer naloxone, a life-saving medication that can help temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. We will also cover concepts that impact opioid use, related harms, and the scope of opioid-related issues within the Canadian and local context. Participants will receive further information and resources on how to apply what they learn in various settings.

    Cultural Awareness Training
    Kimberley Lamothe, Ryan Gray-Brady, and Teresa Nahwegahbow | Nogojiwanong Friendship Centre

    The CAT (Cultural Awareness Training) sessions are meant to provide an awareness about Indigenous people in Canada. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills of the history, experiences, and events which have influenced the relationship of Indigenous people in Canada.

    The Indigenous population in Canada is the fastest growing population, the youngest, but also the most overrepresented population in the justice and child welfare systems. The goal of this workshop is to develop a knowledge base on Indigenous lived experiences and be able to support those individuals who are seeking your help and/or support.

    Beyond the Basics: Meaningfully Engaging People with Lived Experiences
    Brittany Cameron and Becky Lyon | PARN

    People living with, affected by, and at risk of HIV and Hepatitis C play an increasingly important role in the development and delivery of programs, interventions, and services designed to meet their needs. Join us as we learn about HIV and Hep C beyond the basics.

    We present the idea of task shifting at your workplace, within the framework of meaningful engagement of people with lived experience. Recognizing that health and community development are interlinked, task shifting seeks to improve access to services for our community. In a redistribution of tasks, we discuss the role of peers to support this process and assist in returning to the core principles of health services that are accessible and equitable. This training seeks to further support the inclusion of diverse voices as an integral part of reducing and eliminating transmission of HIV and Hep C, while supporting better overall health outcomes in our communities. Topics covered include peer engagement as related to prevention, transmission, testing, treatment, and outreach programming.

    This training will affirm the overwhelming value and benefit of engaging people with lived experiences to expand standard programming. This framework can be applied in an innovative, respectful, and equitable manner, while concurrently encouraging collaborative partnerships between service providers in order to achieve effective service delivery.
