Safer Opioid Prescribing

The University of Toronto’s Safer Opioid Prescribing is one of the first educational programs in the country to offer a curriculum that reflects the Canadian Guidelines for Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain released in May 2017. The three webinars and capstone workshop integrate the Guideline recommendations to ensure that physicians and health care providers have the most up to date information to improve their opioid prescribing and chronic pain management. In partnership with Saegis, a subsidiary of the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), the capstone workshop will be offered in Saskatoon in June 2018.

2017 Health Innovation Summit

At a time of transformational change in Saskatchewan healthcare, we have before us an opportunity like none other - to transform our healthcare experience. We have an opportunity to be leaders in our own healthcare and develop an environment that supports and grows innovation while keeping the patients’ needs and experiences at the centre of care.

How do we achieve this? By supporting a large-scale shift in mindset to look differently at ways to identify what is working, and what changes are possible. We do this by listening to the voices that make up our communities and inspire improvements in the healthcare experience – the patients and their families who seek answers and comfort in their healthcare system, the professionals who see the system in action every day, and the business and community leaders who continue to make this province strong.

 The 2017 Health Innovation Summit: Inspiring Tomorrow’s Healthcare is a day dedicated to bringing a group of stakeholders – with a unique cross-section of expertise, community involvement, and experiences within the healthcare system - together to identify the preferred future of health care in our province.
