For those who could not attend the recent NSW NSP Workers Forum organised by ASHM, we are delighted to be able to provide an encore performance of the plenary presentation given by Professor and Deputy Director, Carla Treloar, National Centre in HIV Social Research:

Finding the needle in the haystack: An overview of new social research 

The amount of research produced each year grows exponentially. It is impossible for people who work as full-time researchers to keep up to date. Finding research that is useful for NSP workers must be like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack.

The aim of this presentation is to provide a brief overview of key social research that has emerged in the last year and provide this in a way that is useful for NSP workers. This presentation will skate across a range of research in the NSP, injecting drug use and hepatitis C social research fields—looking at health promotion resources, primary health care in NSP, trust, expert opinion in harm reduction, public opinion of harm reduction services, and musings on the biopolitics of NSP.
