Description

This campaign consists of two short videos featuring the chair of the Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) discussing the opioid crisis with one of the leaders of Moms Stop the Harm. The "How Does Stigma Affect Patient Care" video considers the effect stigma has on patient care in regards to recovery and addiction. A mother is featured, emphasizing that compassion is needed from pharmacists when dispensing treatments for addiction. In the other video, "How Pharmacists Can Help", the mother explains the importance of pharmacists providing Naloxone kits and tells a personal story of how a pharmacist's encouragement and support helped her son towards his recovery.
