About the PSU Training:
BCAPOP’s Executive Director, Heather Cameron, RN, BScN, will use both her professional and personal lived experience combined with up-to-date best practices, research and resources to offer professionals and peers the knowledge and know how to support pregnant, postpartum and newly parenting people who use substances. This training workshop will provide you with the insight, evidence-based information, increased confidence and comfort to implement useful tools, approaches and strategies to help you engage, support and maintain the supportive relationships necessary to offer gold standard care to your clients, participants or patients.

This training workshop is limited to 30 participants to foster an intimate, engaging and safe place to reflect, share and grow in your professional practice in meaningful ways.
