CAMH has released 'Opioid Agonist Therapy: A Synthesis of Canadian Guidelines for Treating Opioid Use Disorder,' a national clinical guideline that harmonizes existing provincial and national guidelines, evidence-based practices and expert opinions. The aim of this unified guideline is to help health care practitioners provide consistent and high-quality care to people with opioid use disorder.

Original Post

Can we have this document linked to the CPSA agreement on care of patients with chronic pain and safe opioid prescribing?  Keeping the issues separate does a disservice to patients and providers as the use/misuse spectrum includes a broad grey area that needs to be recognized and managed with patient safety and compassionate care as the key issues to balance. By keeping the guidelines separate, it suggests that they are separate issues, which could not be further from the truth. https://cpsa.ca/wp-content/upl...nciple-2-0-final.pdf
