Evaluating responses to the drug poisoning crisis in British Columbia

This presentation focuses on research examining potential benefits and harms of responses to the ongoing drug poisoning crisis in BC.

Dr. Mary Clare Kennedy will present the findings of recent studies investigating: the health impacts of overdose prevention sites in Vancouver; the role of drug checking data from Vancouver as a tool for monitoring population-level risk of drug poisoning; and the effects of discontinuing and tapering of prescribed opioid therapy on overdose risk among people with chronic pain in BC.
