International Society of Addiction Medicine (ISAM) Global Survey on COVID-19 and Substance Use Disorder
The ISAM Practice and Policy Interest Group (PPIG) is keen to support addiction clinicians globally during this unprecedented and challenging period caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ISAM is seeking information from people working in addiction medicine to collate valuable information on how services have been re-organised during and post-COVID-19 and what continuity and/or contingencies were planned as a result. Addiction clinicians are asked to share their personal experiences by completing an online survey that should take <20 minutes to complete.
This survey will be repeated every month for the next 3-6 months. ISAM aim to publish the results of this survey in high impact peer-reviewed publications with every survey participant invited to be a co-author. The information provided will generate learning on potential pitfalls, collective areas of good practice and
innovative system solutions that could inform policy and practice responses in future disease outbreak situations.
The survey is available at: https://cts.vresp.com/c/?ISAM/15fded8e6a/01d5b4e34b/0e4884cfb8/vc=0&c=0&w=1
