Opioid Process Improvements Training

​Tackling the opioid crisis in Alberta will require new approaches and an immediate response of the entire health system to change its trajectory. The engagement and response of primary care physicians, teams, and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) will be essential in defining new primary health care approaches to address the crisis and the systemic issues that contribute to the crisis. This curriculum provides examples of evidence-based quality improvement actions that primary care teams can do to help optimize processes for paneled patients who use opioids.

​Intended audience

Primary care physicians, clinical team members, Practice Facilitators
