We are delighted to announce that Professor Shane Darke will deliver a lecture on his research into NPS-related deaths in Australia. Prof. Darke works at the National Drug & Alcohol Research Centre, University of New South Wales and is a world-leading expert on morbidity and mortality associated with illicit drug use. He will outline the contribution that NPS make to Australian drug deaths and will describe the characteristics of cases and circumstances of death. This event will be of interest to anyone interested in learning about the impact of synthetic cannabinoids, novel psychostimulants / hallucinogens and other substances on mortality among people who use drugs.
