Public Health and Harm Reducation 

June 28, 2018

This session is meant to impart working knowledge regarding the importance of public health involvement in Harm Reduction.  Tsuut’ina Nation is now ready to move beyond Naloxone dispensation to be more inclusive of, not only Harm Reduction activities, but the adoption of Harm Reduction Principles.  Infrastructure for public health involvement has been developed through knowledge sharing with other Harm Reduction agencies and community partners both on and off the Nation.  In the spirit of sharing and networking Tsuut’ina will present on previous harm reduction activities, current program goals and methods of implementation in the hopes of furthering conversation of how Health can participate in the reduction of harms associated with substance use.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Be able to differentiate between the principles of Harm Reduction  versus the activities of Harm Reduction

2. Be able to conceptualize small ways Health Centres can impact the health outcomes of people using substances knowing that funding may be limited

3. Feel more confident in advocating for and accessing information relat ed to Harm Reduction
