Harm Reduction Module
Harm Reduction Module for Primary Care includes evidence based strategies for supporting a harm reduction approach within primary care settings, including recommended practices for reducing the experience of bias and stigma faced by People Who Use Drugs, their families and other individuals with lived experience of opioid use.
The module is intended for a broad multi-disciplinary audience including physicians, nurse practitioners and other health care providers. It will build on foundational principles of harm reduction and work already accomplished through the process of revising the AHS Harm Reduction Policy.
