Description

People who inject drugs (PWID) often have poor health and lack access to health care. This CEU course examines whether PWID engage in self-treatment through nonmedical prescription opioid use (NMPOU). Further, whether a history of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) enrollment is associated with a reduced odds of PWID providing injection initiation assistance is discussed. Finally, this course identifies socioeconomic factors associated with cessation of injection drug use among street-involved youth.

Objectives

On completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Enumerate the factors identifying patients in chronic opioid therapy at high risk for misuse.

2. Investigate what the use of NMPD among PWID has been found to be significantly associated with.

3. Examine the connection between MAT enrollment and reduction in initiating others into IDU.

4. Elucidate the covariates found to be positively associated with NMPOU.

5. Identify the contributing factor to injection initiation among youth populations.
