How are your sites?

How are your sites?

In services, particularly those offering Injection Equipment Provision (IEP), workers often ask clients the question ‘How are your sites?’

Do you know what to do when the answer differs from ‘Okay’? 

Scottish Drugs Forum have carefully designed this e-learning course to help you answer those questions by focusing on the structure of the skin, skin problems in people who inject, and the difference between infected and non-infected injecting wounds. When you complete this course, you will be able to assess simple injecting sites and offer treatment options or recommendations to people who inject drugs.


 By the end of this two-hour course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the structure and function of the skin
  • Describe the context of skin problems in people who inject
  • Assess simple injecting sites
  • Differentiate between infected and non-infected injecting wounds
  • Discuss potential treatment options  and offer recommendations

Our e-learning courses can be completed at any date or time, please disregard the 'Start Date' and 'End Date' listed anywhere.
