Although rates of substance use have declined among youth in Ontario, Canada key issues such as alcohol and tobacco use continue to be a concern. Many sectors, including health, justice, and education, have a role to play in addressing these issues. The findings from the Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS) can help teachers, policy-makers, parents, and youth understand drug use trends as a way to inform related activities and services.
This two part webinar series will :
- Introduce the 2015 OSDUHS drug use results.
- Discuss key trends of drug use among youth in Ontario.
- Provide examples of the application of OSDUHS data in systems-level planning as well as in health promotion and public health settings.
