Engaging People Who Use Drugs  By the end of this course, you’ll have a foundation in understanding the harm reduction approach, how stigma impacts access and engagement in services, and practical strategies you can adopt to promote effective communication with people who use drugs.

Lastly, we’ll put your skills to the test by reviewing a few scenarios with providers and identifying how to improve communication and engagement.
