Abstract

Assertive outreach teams work with some individuals who experience severe problems and are also injecting drug users. These people can be at risk due to their injecting behaviour, and also not be in contact with harm reduction agencies. This article describes, through case discussion, a collaborative initiative where assertive outreach case managers and harm reduction workers worked together to provide an individual harm reduction service to this vulnerable group. The project successfully engaged service users and was able to deliver harm reduction support.
