BCCSU Stimulant Use Disorder Practice Update plus webinars

The BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU) has released Stimulant Use Disorder: Practice Update which provides clinical tips and introduces new evidence and approaches relevant for those providing care for individuals who use illicit stimulants. The guidance comprises of two parts: current treatment options and guidance on when trialling prescribed stimulants to reduce overdose risk and other harms may be appropriate. Note that this does not represent a comprehensive guideline on management of stimulant use disorder and associated conditions.

You can find the new guidance here: Stimulant Use Disorder Practice Update- June 2022

BCCSU will be hosting a series of clinician-targeted provincial and regionally-focused webinars that will provide an overview of the above guidance documents and opportunity to ask questions/seek advice to support implementing these changes into your practice.
