The objective of this Town Hall is to provide a platform for people to share their experiences, express their opinions, and raise questions about care received by people who use drugs within hospital settings and to discuss what improvements can be made to our hospital system. Zoë Dodd will be available to answer questions and offer insight.
Our hope is that the perspectives shared throughout this Town Hall and the accompanying summary report can be used by researchers to identify patient-oriented research needs and by policymakers, hospitals, and other healthcare settings to consider gaps and/or opportunities for improvement in the healthcare system.
Register here to learn more and express your interest in participating (live, pre-recorded and written options available). This event is also open to anyone interested in listening and learning from those with lived experience. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Ontario Drug Policy Research Network (ODPRN) is a province-wide network of researchers funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, with a mandate to provide timely, high quality, drug policy relevant research to decision makers that integrates the perspectives and experiences of people with lived and living experience. The ODPRN also leads the Ontario Opioid Drug Observatory, which brings together knowledge users, researchers and data to inform and evaluate opioid policy across Ontario. This initiative is being led by the ODPRN Citizens’ Panel, a group of volunteer Ontarians who have collectively come together to ensure that the ODPRN appropriately identifies issues of importance to the public, and incorporates these priorities into all aspects of our research.
