Description

Women who inject drugs have substantially different needs and face higher risks of disease and violence than do men who inject drugs. This CEU course seeks to illuminate the many reasons a focus on drug-injecting women is important, including their significantly higher mortality rates, increased likelihood of facing injecting-related problems, faster progression from first use to dependence, higher rates of HIV, increased risky injection and/or sexual risk behaviors.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Investigate predictors for initiation into injecting drug use.

2. Compare and contrast residential, outpatient, and low threshold treatment designs.

3. Examine the primary source of risk that may explain the higher rates of HIV among female IDU sex workers.

4. Elucidate one of the strongest individual attribute predictors of initiating to injecting.

5. Identify when female IDU are more likely to enter and remain in treatment.

6. Provide the main structural barrier to seeking treatment.
