New season of webinars

EENet is starting a new season of webinars that aim to bring together mental health and addictions stakeholders from across the province—and the country!

Our first webinar of the year, a continuation of the Health Canada Drug Treatment Funding Program (DTFP) Webinar series, looks at the Screening, Assessment and Recovery Monitoring (SARM) project, one of eleven Ontario DTFP Systems Projects.

Screening and assessment tools help service providers determine the appropriate level and intensity of care for clients who are entering the substance use treatment system. The SARM project is drawing on the best available evidence as well as the feedback of key stakeholders throughout the province to develop and pilot new screening and assessment tools and procedures. The SARM Project is also piloting an evidence-based protocol for recovery monitoring. The monitoring of client outcomes is a crucial part of assessing the performance of the substance use treatment system. The project team hopes to determine if it is feasible to implement a recovery monitoring system for Ontario.

The focus of the webinar is an overview of the project, the process, preliminary results, and next steps.

Date: Friday, January 25, 2013
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST
Presenter: Dr. Brian Rush, Project Lead and Group Head of the Health Systems and Health Equity Research Group, CAMH
