Funded by Health Canada’s Drug Treatment Funding Program (DTFP), the Needs-based Planning Model project team is working to create a tool to systematically measure the need for services and supports for individuals with substance use problems across Canada. The tool will also help gauge required service capacities, based on local/regional population need and problem severity. This tool will be useful for decision-makers involved in system-level planning; the team hopes that uptake of the tool will play a fundamental role in advocacy efforts for additional resources in areas where gaps have been identified, as well as in improving the delivery of local services.
On Wednesday, December 19, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., please join us for a webinar about the project team’s work to date. Dr. Brian Rush will discuss “The Development of a Needs-Based Planning Model for Substance Use Services and Supports in Canada.” This is the first National DTFP project to present in EENet’s Health Canada DTFP Webinar Series.
