Queen’s, AFMC launch national curricula for opioid education


The Queen’s University Health Sciences’ Office of Professional Development & Educational Scholarship, in collaboration with the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC), has launched new national curricula to support physicians contending with Canada’s opioid crisis. The national curricula are bilingual, competency-based, and intended to help physicians in pain management, opioid use disorder, and addiction medicine. “We are proud to help develop this dynamic space for learning,” said Queen’s Health Sciences Dean Dr Jane Philpott. “Addiction and pain management are critical issues in our health system and this program will help prepare students and professionals to meet our patients’ and communities’ needs.”
