Part 1: The objective of this 1.5 hour project session on May 19, 2022, was to spread learnings on how to implement safer supply projects. Dr. Christy Sutherland, Medical Director of PHS in Vancouver, presented on their innovative safer supply program. We also heard from the Nelson CAT on their initiative.

Part 2: On July 14, 2022, we continued the dialogue with Dr. Christy Sutherland, covering topics such as how CATs can bring value to the spread of safer supply, how to partner with prescribers, distribution models and more!
