The Learning about Opioid Use Disorder in the Emergency Department (LOUD in the ED) Collaborative is a provincial quality improvement initiative focused on ED care for people who use opioids.

LOUD in the ED has been postponed.

We have been closely following the COVID-19 outbreak and following the guidance from those leading our health care system’s response.

The ability of our emergency care system to respond to the pandemic is paramount. As such, we have decided to postpone the launch of the Learning about Opioid Use Disorder (LOUD) in the Emergency Department Collaborative. This includes delaying the virtual launch scheduled for April 1 and the in-person learning day scheduled for April 22.

As the overdose crisis in BC and beyond continues, we remain committed to improving care for people who use opioids and the experience of OUD care for people and providers. Details on a new date for the collaborative will be shared as soon as possible.

Please contact loud@bcpsqc.ca with questions or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on LOUD in the ED.
