Project Duration: July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012

The BC Drug and Poison Information Centre provides a 24-hour toll-free poison information service to all British Columbians. The ability of specially trained health care professionals, including pharmacists and nurses, to provide treatment advice and information regarding poisonings, drug overdoses and chemical exposures will be enhanced through purchase and implementation of a new electronic data collection system. This will allow detection of trends in poison spread and frequency, facilitating early alerts through the media, and an ability to develop improved education and community prevention programs
