About the Conference

The 10th Annual Addiction Day and Scientific Conference – June 01, 2018

The vision of the Addiction Day Conference and Networking Fair is to increase public awareness of addiction and mental health problems, and to enhance knowledge, competencies and treatment care. Through a combination of diverse presentations, workshops and networking opportunities, we hope to bring together healthcare professionals from across the care continuum for a day of learning and discussion.

Past conferences have been approved as Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and accredited by the University of Calgary Office of Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development. Participants claimed up to a maximum of 6.5 study credits.  This event (2018) will also be submitted for CME Accreditation.

10th Annual Addiction Day Networking Fair

In recognition of the many different organizations that promote and provide recovery-oriented services to clients and families in Alberta, we are pleased to continue our tradition of an Annual Networking Fair during our Addiction Day Conference.

This year’s conference, in collaboration with the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine (CSAM), will explore international/national trends in current clinical best practice and research across the addiction spectrum, including opiate use and response.  This year’s event is presented in the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations.
