How are your sites?

This e-learning course discusses harm reduction related to injecting sites. It aims to help workers assess sites and offer accurate advice to people who inject drugs.

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’?  Do you know what to look for when you see an injecting site?  Do you know what questions to ask?  And what treatment to offer?


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
