COVID-19 Research - Health Care Providers Survey on Safe Supply; Perceptions and Attitudes of Healthcare Providers

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy

The current COVID-19 pandemic has increased risk of overdose and decreased access to healthcare for people who use drugs (PWUD). In response, interim clinical guidelines have been created for assessing those at risk for these harms and provision of a safe supply of medications that replace substances (https://www.bccsu.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Risk-Mitigation-in-the-C...). The purpose of our project is to distribute an online survey to currently practising health care providers in British Columbia to understand their perspectives and attitudes towards these guidelines.
