28 Feb 2019, 1:00pm-2:00pm

NDRI invites you to a free seminar with James Fetherston and Jodie Grigg – National Drug Research Institute, Curtin University.

Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) – James Fetherston
The IDRS is an annual survey carried out in each jurisdiction of Australia of people who regularly inject drugs with a view to monitoring evolving trends. In this seminar, data obtained from the 2018 Perth sample will be presented, covering the frequency of use of illicit drugs such as heroin, crystal methamphetamine, cocaine, pharmaceutical opiates and cannabis, as well as trends in their price, purity and availability over the years.

Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) – Jodie Grigg
The EDRS is the sister project of the IDRS, and focuses on monitoring trends in ecstasy and other 'party drug' use. In this seminar, findings from the WA arm of the EDRS will be presented, with a focus on key trends observed in 2018.
