OPS Inhalation Tent Study

Status: Active

Project Lead: Jenna van Draanen

We are studying the Inhalation Tent program model in partnership with the Overdose Prevention Society to prepare for sharing knowledge about this model with other sites looking to offer safer smoking facility (SSF) services. As similar sites are launched locally and across Canada, we need to investigate the services of the peer-run inhalation tent model at OPS and how they are being used so we can share our findings with others looking to do the same thing. The study partners with the Overdose Prevention Society and the OPPRA program. Funding for this study was obtained from CIHR by Dr. Seonaid Nolan, Assistant Professor at the UBC Department of Medicine, and Research Scientist with the BC Centre on Substance Use.
