Access to health services for people who use methamphetamine

Description 
Well-developed accessible health service systems have been associated with a reduction in aggregate alcohol and other drug related-harms at a population level. To prevent and reduce the adverse consequences of methamphetamine use, it is crucial to understand how people who use methamphetamine utilise services. The aim of this quantitative study is to examine longitudinal patterns of health service utilisation by people who smoke methamphetamine. PhD students may be eligible for a scholarship and School of Rural Health BMedSc(Hons) students are eligible for financial support. There is some flexibility regarding attendance requirements.
