The intended audience for this webinar is anyone engaged in work related to opioids at the Public Health Unit, LHIN, or provincial level. Presented by: Dr. Tara Gomes, Principal Investigator, Ontario Drug Policy Research Network. Monitoring trends and patterns of opioid prescriptions and the associated risks has become a provincial and national priority.

This data captures all opioid prescriptions dispensed in retail pharmacies across Ontario. The tool also includes information on pharmacy-dispensed naloxone, a program introduced in June 2016 in the province, using data from the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program. This tool, which was made to complement Public Health Ontario’s interactive tool on opioid-related harms, is interactive and the graphs and maps are adjustable to present patterns in the distribution of these indicators by age, sex, LHIN and PHU. All data displayed on the tool is available for download. The objectives of this webinar are to: Outline the opioid-related indicators included within the tool Describe some of the methodological approaches, strengths and limitations of the data Provide a walk-through demonstration of the tool, including how to find and interpret information, and how to download the data Allow opportunities for feedback, questions and...

Gambling on Campus: A Hidden Problem? 1:00 pm
Gambling on Campus: A Hidden Problem? @ Online
Feb 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Gambling is a common and increasingly popular activity, especially among young adults. It can be a healthy form of entertainment for most of the population- but for some it can negatively impact their physical and mental health, as well as strain social and cultural ties. Technological advances have increased the accessibility of gambling beyond traditional land-based activities (e.g. casinos), allowing individuals to gamble from the comfort of their computer or smartphone, any time they feel like it. These advances have also blurred the line between gambling and gaming, with many traditional smartphone or computer-based games now including gambling elements (e.g. loot-boxes). This brief presentation will provide an overview of gambling behaviour and harm, its relationship to other mental health conditions university/college students are susceptible to, and provide considerations for developing campus services and polices to promote healthy play and reduce negative health outcomes. This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.
