This webinar will define harm reduction and provide an overview of this public health approach in programs and practice. It will showcase examples of harm reduction services available in the community as well as practical strategies to use when caring for people who use substances.
The topics of stigma, trauma, social determinants of health, and culture will be discussed with respect to their impact on health outcomes and how to address this in practice. Attendees will have a better understanding of what “meeting people where they’re at” means through careful consideration of a person’s lived experience when planning and providing care.
Includes a live Q&A with AHS Harm Reduction Services Team and CLPNA representatives.
