Measuring Stigma Related to Opioid Use Webinar Registration - Oct. 28. 2020

The Opening Minds Provider Attitudes Towards Opioid Use Scale: Assessing attitudes and helping behaviours 

Description: Learn more about the development of the Opening Minds Provider Attitudes Towards Opioid Use Scale (OM-PATOS) and how it can be used to systematically measure the attitudes and helping behaviours of first responders and health-and social-care providers towards people living with opioid use. You'll learn more about how the scale may be used for the purposes of evaluating and assessing the impact of initiatives or programs designed to reduce opioid related stigma, as well as more about the work we have been doing in assessing opioid stigma reduction programs.

Speakers: This webinar will be presented by Dr. Stephanie Knaak and Jes Beshara. Dr. Knaak, the co-creator of the OM-PATOS, is a Senior Research Consultant at the Mental Health Commission of Canada and international leader in stigma research. She also holds an Assistant Adjunct Professorship in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Calgary and is an associate member of the Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research and Education. Jes Beshara is a Community Harm Reduction Support Navigator at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit in Brockville and a Peer Support Worker at Canadian Addiction Treatment Centres. She is a recent graduate of the Mental Wellness and Addictions Worker program at St. Lawrence College and has over 25 years of lived experience with opioid use.
