What's New in Addiction Medicine? is a lunch-time series featuring local and international experts, clinicians, and researchers who will deliver the latest research and information on novel, evidence-based addiction medicine topics.

This free series is geared towards the needs and interests of individuals operating in a healthcare or research setting, however, the public and other interested stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to attend.

As a light lunch will be provided and to ensure enough food will be ordered, make sure to RSVP In advanced. Please note that you will not need to bring your registration ticket(s) to the event.

Learning Objectives:

1. Define the potential harms inherent at large outdoor festivals, particularly those relating to attendee demographics and substance use patterns.

2. Outline how drug checking, education, medical support and other harm reduction services can reduce harms associated with recreational substance use at outdoor festivals, with special emphasis on the current climate of fentanyl, novel psychoactive agents, and increasing polysubstance use.
