Opioid Agonist Treatment Prescriber Training

The grant-funded OAT workshops previously supported by CPSM have now concluded. 

The OAT 101: An Introduction to Clinical Practice Workshop is still being offered by the University of Manitoba’s CPD Medicine Program, based on ongoing demand. This is an in-person, interdisciplinary, accredited training program for physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, nurses, and allied health professionals who wish to become involved in treating individuals with opioid use disorder in Manitoba.

The program involves pre-reading, two full days of didactic and interactive small-group learning, and a post-workshop reflective component. The program is recognized by CPSM, CRNM and CPhM as the recommended/prerequisite training to prescribe or dispense methadone and buprenorphine/naloxone in Manitoba.

Please contact your respective regulatory body for additional details about the application, training, & regulatory requirements to provide OAT in Manitoba.

The next OAT 101 Workshop is scheduled for October 2024.
