On the 8th June 2023, DRNS hosted an event in Glasgow sharing highlights from some of the research supported through the network during its second funded phase (since 2020). The day focussed on knowledge exchange and provided opportunity for academic researchers, practitioners and clinicians, third sector representatives, and people with living/lived experience to hear from researchers across the field working on a range of research projects. The session incorporated time for networking for new connections to be made and potential ideas generated. Presentations included:

  • What is good care for parents who use drugs and their families?: Results from a relational ethnography. Anne Whittaker, University of Stirling
  • A mixed-methods evaluation of peer-to-peer naloxone training and supply in Scotland. Matt Smith, Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Reflections on co-producing a systems map of drug-related deaths in Scotland. Rosie Seaman, University of Glasgow
  • Mortality among individuals prescribed opioid-agonist therapy in Scotland, 2011-2020: a national retrospective cohort study. Andrew McAuley, Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Evaluating the training, carriage and administration of naloxone in Police Scotland. Peter Hillen, Edinburgh Napier University
  • Ambulance call-outs to drug overdoses in Scotland: Patterns and practice. Jim Lewsey, University of Glasgow & Allison Ford, University of Stirling

The DRNS core team also provided an overview of network activity from over the last three years. If you would like to access presentation slides from the event please email admin@drns.ac.uk
