Scottish National Research Framework for Problem Drug Use and Recovery

This document identifies the most important current research priorities relating to problem drug use and recovery in Scotland.


The purpose of this document is to frame a number of high level priorities for research into the challenges and questions associated with problem drug use and recovery in Scotland.

Identified by stakeholders from the sector, these priorities aim to encourage and stimulate the research community in Scotland and guide a range of research, evaluation, data collection, analysis and quality improvement activities. Research design needs to ensure relevance and application, while research dissemination activities should seek to maximise opportunities to inform policy makers and practitioners. Through research, a strengthened evidence base can help improve policy development and practice at national and local levels to address challenges more effectively.
