AFMC Response to the Canadian Opioid Crisis

To fulfill its commitment to Health Canada, AFMC reviewed the accreditation standards for undergraduate medical education. AFMC also conducted an environmental scan of offerings across Canadian medical schools and convened three expert panel meetings to review the curricula and teaching currently being provided in undergraduate medical education (UGME), postgraduate medical education (PGME) and continuing professional development (CPD). Responding schools provided some best practices of teaching and evaluating in opioid prescribing and/or pain management, primarily in non-cancer pain. In consequence, a robust repository has been created. This work can be accessed here:
