Wood, David M and Dines, Alison M and Heyerdahl, Fridtjof and Yates, Christopher M and Giraudon, I and Paasma, R and Hovda, Knut Erik and Dargan, Paul I (2016) Review of European-Drug Emergencies Network (Euro-DEN) training package for non-specialist workers to assess acute recreational drug and new psychoactive substance toxicity in night-time economy environments. Drugs: Education Prevention and Policy , 23 , (1) , pp. 73-77.


he initial management of acute recreational drug and new psychoactive substance (NPS) toxicity is often by non-specialists working in the night-time economy. The aim was as part of the European Drug Emergencies Network (Euro-DEN) project to pilot training of these workers in multiple European countries. The guidelines and training were well received by night-time economy workers in three European countries and improved confidence in managing acute recreational drug/NPS toxicity. Appropriate national and European bodies need to look at wider dissemination of this work.
