  • An evaluation of the Naloxone demonstration project was launched in August. Training in the use of Naloxone is available and over 600 people have been trained.
  • SAOR is a standardised alcohol and substance use screening and brief intervention support. 78 SAOR training sessions were delivered and four train-the-trainer sessions were completed.
  • Opioid substitution treatment clinical guidelines were launched in December which will assist in ensuring that addiction services can be accessed close to where people live.
  • A national homeless hospital discharge protocol was developed with local authorities, homeless action teams and voluntary organisations. It ensures procedures are in place so that necessary accommodation and supports are available, prior to discharge, for those experiencing homelessness or for those at risk of homelessness. The protocol was implemented in St. James’s Hospital and the Mater Misercordiae University Hospital. It will be rolled out to remaining hospitals in 2017.
  • Enhanced service provision was provided to supported accommodation across the Dublin region through in-reach GP services and multidisciplinary health teams.
  • The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Safe and Supportive Schools project model was launched in May. This is a venture with BeLonG To and involved working with teachers, parents, students and the broader community to build a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for LGBT young people.
