e-Health involves the use of digital technologies to improve health in a variety of ways including:

  • providing drug-related information with harm reduction advice (e.g. safer use) with or without personalised feedback from professionals and linked with specialised drug services if needed;
  • treating patients with substance use disorders, including comorbidity, via e-health interventions; educating treatment professionals using e-learning modules on therapeutic techniques; and
  • using digital diaries to monitor substance use in persons being treated for substance use disorders.
