Illicit drug use is often highly stigmatized. As a result, people who use drugs may feel it’s not safe to access care. Stigma acts as a barrier to accessing health services and can affect the provision of nursing care. Harm reduction and cultural safety, when used as clinical frameworks for practice, have been found to help mitigate stigma and enhance access to health care for people who use illicit drugs.
