The Photograph Not Taken

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .
I’ve been fortunate to have been given access to photograph at the two Drug Consumption Rooms in Australia, the Sydney Medically Supervised Injecting Centre (MSIC) which has been running for over 17 years, and the recently opened Melbourne Medically Supervised Injecting Room (MSIR). Most of the photos I’ve been taking are of the staff and the facilities at the projects… but I’d like to describe the photo I didn’t take.

Why Should ‘We’ Stop Saying ‘Public Injecting’?

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .
The latter half of 2016 saw increased interest and positive development with regard to the introduction of Safer Injecting Facilities (SIF) in both Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. Whether or not this interest proves to be yet another false policy promise in the progress of UK harm reduction remains to be seen. However, during this period of potential development, I couldn’t help but notice that advocates of SIF stated that such facilities would aim to reduce local levels of ‘public injecting’ and assist with ‘removing drug-use from the street’.

NSP Outcomes Tool

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .
Over the last year or so I’ve come across a lot of people talking about developing tools for monitoring ‘Outcomes’ in needle & syringe programmes (NSP), but I’ve yet to see one that actually manages to work in real life. So I’ve been developing a tool for NSPs that may be a solution.

This is a workshop on crack cocaine and safer pipe use, and of course includes all the information needed to run a successful harm reduction focused workshop with clients and/or staff. The workshop may also be of interest to people currently smoking crack cocaine as it contains important information on keeping yourself safe.
