A mixed methods evaluation of safer supply initiatives to reduce illicit drug overdose in BC

Funding body

CIHR Project Grant


This four-year study will evaluate the ongoing implementation and outcomes of safer supply initiatives in BC (RMG and PSS), including both prescriber-based and grassroots-led models. It is an extension and expansion of our team’s existing CIHR-funded evaluation of a provincial effort to support prescribed safer supply (RMG) during the pandemic. This project will include a strengthened partnership with Indigenous leaders, Elders and system partners to further Indigenous self determining research and ensure action-oriented and culturally relevant findings.
