The ban on safe supply: An Alberta case study

Hot Topic Webinar |

In October 2022, Alberta underwent changes to their prescribing regulations, and safer supply was effectively banned in the province. These changes restrict prescribing to a small number of clinics and require witnessed dosing.  These clinics were renamed Narcotic Transition Services.

This case study aims to explore the implications of these prescribing regulation changes. It will examine the framing used to construct narratives about safer supply and the individuals who accessed these medications. Additionally, the webinar will discuss the outcomes following the ban of safer supply in Alberta.
