    Presentations and workshops will explore how preventing drug-related deaths is everyone’s responsibility and how we can work in partnership to avoid such devastating loss of lives.

    The event will seek to build on SDF’s work on Staying Alive In Scotland and is timely, as it will follow the launch of Scotland’s drug strategy and the National Records of Scotland report on the number of lives tragically lost through preventable fatal overdoses in 2017.

    Presentations and workshops will offer inspirational strategies based on good practice and training tasters on skills and knowledge required by frontline staff and managers to support improvements in service provision.

    Speakers and facilitators will be drawn from key services and this event will be of interest to commissioners and planners, staff working in criminal justice and enforcement, treatment, care and support, pharmacy, general practice, first response and services working with peers and families.

    This event marks International Overdose Awareness Day.
