CN SN: PUB LTE: Nurses Urge Change To Opioid Policy

The StarPhoenix, 28 Nov 2016 – Canada is experiencing a serious opioid epidemic. While it has only recently made headlines, there has been a growing trend toward misuse and illegal use of opioid prescriptions in the past few years, one that nurses across Canada have seen firsthand. Whether or not people obtain these drugs by prescription, the difficulty of withdrawal is having a serious impact on our publicly funded health system. The Canadian Nurses Association is therefore pleased with Health Minister Jane Philpott’s call for a national strategy to face this crisis.
