November 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Centre of Excellence for Women's Health

This webinar will share a new toolkit, Mothering and Opioids: Addressing Stigma and Acting Collaboratively, developed by the Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health.

This webinar is designed for practitioners and service planners who offer services to, and design services with, pregnant women and new mothers who use substances.

The toolkit invites people working in the substance use, child welfare, and related systems, to think about how we can continue to improve our work in partnership with women who engage with these services. The Toolkit includes 15 action-oriented tools, self-reflection guides, fact sheets and discussion starters for work to Reduce stigma; Offer programming; Collaborate across systems; and Improve policy. It highlights culturally safe, trauma informed, harm reduction-oriented and participant-driven approaches.

This webinar is hosted by the Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health.
