National pharmacist survey on opioid prescribing and dispensing practices
Pharmacists across Canada have an important role to play in the prevention and treatment of opioid harms and dependency, including appropriate opioid prescribing and dispensing. The Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) has been a strong advocate for more opportunities and supports for pharmacists in the management of opioid therapy, including listing pharmacists as practitioners within the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA).
To help us continue this important work, we are conducting a national survey on opioid prescribing and dispensing practices. Developed with guidance and input from pharmacy leaders and subject matter experts, the survey includes topics such as opioid stewardship, intervention programs, Opioid Agonist Therapy and adapting opioid therapy. It is intended for practising pharmacists and the results will help raise awareness of pharmacists’ experiences on the frontlines of patient care in opioid therapy management.
The survey is expected to take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be open until 11:59pm Eastern on Friday, February 28. You will be able to save your responses and return to the survey at a later time.
The survey is anonymous, but you can submit your contact information to be entered into a draw for a chance to win an iPad.
The survey is not optimized for mobile devices. For best results, please use a computer to complete the survey.
Thank you in advance for sharing your valuable insights and experiences related to the management of opioid therapy in your practice.
