Recovery Science and Harm Reduction Reading Group (New England Region 1) – April 2024

The New England ATTC in partnership with RICARES is providing a basic/universal TA session titled “Makeshift medicine is a response to US health system failures” on 4/18/24 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. In public health research, a theoretical framework is like a plan or a set of guidelines. It helps people understand the ideas and concepts they're working with, and it gives them a structure to organize their work. Like an instruction manual, a theoretical framework guides researchers or project planners in organizing their thoughts and designing their work in a logical and meaningful way. Pat Kelly created the ‘makeshift medicine’ framework, which describes how people address healthcare needs when they cannot access care by traditional means—that is, when they, for various reasons, may not be able to see a doctor, make an appointment at a clinic, or go to a hospital. This framework can help us understand, for example, why some people who inject drugs may not wish to have skin wounds treated in-clinic because they fear stigma against people who use drugs. Further, the ‘makeshift medicine’ framework is a critical first step in understanding how to better help care for the needs of people who are otherwise excluded by the traditional care delivery system.
