Drug overdoses continue to impact different countries in the world particularly in North America and Scotland. Scotland has the most severe drug-related deaths (DRD) in Europe, almost four times that of other countries. Innovative solutions are required to support people at risk of harm. Digital technology such as smartphone applications, wearable sensors, could help to identify and prevent overdose. This webinar included presentations highlighting international innovation studies on different digital solutions. Presentations included:
