Kirk is a graduate of University of Western Ontario in Sociology and Psychology and a peer educator for South West Self-Management Pain Program. Kirk is also a prior patient with a story to tell about how tapering off opioids and getting to zero is possible even after years on a high dose. Kirk provides lessons and shares real life experiences to effect positive change. He was successful in getting to zero and now he speaks to doctors, healthcare practitioners, patients and government about how to support patients like him to reduce or stop taking opioid medication. Kirk’s story is amazing, but the strategies that he employed aren’t magic. They are informative and transferable. He can help others by sharing his story and to work with them and their doctors to map out a blueprint of a plan to make possible for others to taper safely. Kirk works alongside Dr. Andrea Furlan at University Health Network as a patient reviewer of medical papers. He has had the honour of speaking at Queen’s Park to the deputy health minister, LHIN CEO’s, to Health Quality Ontario and to 200 Nurse Practioners.
