Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) and Harm Reduction Programs are oft-debated as to the ethics of the approach, whether they are helpful or harmful, and who makes the decision on when to implement the programs. This involves the ethical implications of beneficence, justice, autonomy, and non-malfeasance.
Harm reduction, by necessity, focuses on health and social issues around which there is often community misunderstanding, stigma, and fear (e.g. in relation to blood-born viruses, illicit drug use, sexually transmissible infections, mental health, etc. We will discuss potential ethical dilemmas, common misconceptions, and the potential for a benefit vs harm viewpoint.
In this course, we discuss multiple aspects of medication-assisted treatment such as the history of, an evidence-based approach, ethical considerations & biases of the helping professional and how to spot microaggressions when working with substance use clients, and any jurisdiction-relevant legal information regarding the use of MAT and Harm Reduction Methods.
