AFMC commits to:
• Continuing to ensure that the accreditation standards for Canada's medical schools include instruction in the diagnosis, prevention, appropriate reporting and treatment of the medical consequences of common societal problems, including the opioid crisis.
• By November 2017: Having faculty experts:
- Review opioid educational activities currently in use in its 17 faculties of medicine; and
- Create and share a repository of educational products that reflect best practice and provide them to all faculties.
Our review and collection of the opioid educational activities is now underway. We are convening a meeting of experts from our 17 Faculties of Medicine to identify best practices. Results and educational tools will be shared widely so that our physicians are well-equipped to address this crisis now and in the future.
