QMJC June 2021: Non-carriage of take home naloxone
The latest Qualitative Methods Journal Club (QMJC) from June is now available online, focusing on the issue of non-carriage of take home naloxone amongst people who use opioids in New York City.
The article presents a qualitative study about the reasons why people who use drugs may choose not to carry take home naloxone in a location where availability and access to take home naloxone have increased as a direct public health response to a local/national opioid epidemic (and associated fatal overdose).
The discussion was led by Anya Aggarwal (National Addiction Centre, KCL), and the meeting was chaired and summarised by Stephen Parkin (National Addiction Centre, KCL).
