In The Know Webinar Series - Using E-Prescribing to Reduce Harms from Opioid Misuse
Sponsored by: Canada Health Infoway
PrescribeIT® is Canada’s national not-for-profit e-prescribing service that enables the electronic transmission of a prescription from a prescriber’s electronic medical record (EMR) to the pharmacy management system (PMS) of a patient’s pharmacy of choice. Since 2016, the national opioid crisis has become more severe. In 2021, 21 Canadians a day died from opioids; a 162 per cent increase from 2016 and a 101 per cent increase from just the year before. Join us for this webinar as Dr. Adam Stacie, family and palliative care physician at the Brockville Family Medical Centre, and Pharmacist Tarek Hussein, owner of Weller Pharmacy in Kingston, Ontario discuss their experiences using PrescribeIT® to minimize opioid prescription misuse, including clinical workflow impacts, value-added medication management, and lessons learned.
