Reducing Stigma in Primary Care Project

CISUR's Reducing Stigma in Primary Care Project brings together people who use or have used substances, academic researchers, physicians, and health planners to develop a model of safe primary care for this population.

The Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research is committed to both conducting high-quality research and contributing to constructive communication and cooperation between producers, intermediaries and users of various types of knowledge. This knowledge is vital to the implementation of evidence-based policy and practice related to substance use, addiction and related harms in our province and beyond. Ultimately, we aim to promote health for everyone in our society. This involves attention to

    • the epidemiology of substance use,
    • population level and the setting of specific health promotion strategies, and
    • treatment systems and innovative intervention programs.
