About the Edition

Background. Illicit opiate users have been found to have higher rates of emergency health care and lower rates of primary care. The pathways leading to higher rates of urgent health care utilization (UHCU) are not yet known. Methods. Baseline data (2002) from a sub sample (n = 539 participants; incarcerated ≤24 days) of a multi-site cohort study among opiate users (OPICAN) was analyzed using logistic regression and path analysis to identify direct and indirect pathways leading to UHCU. Differences across sites were examined in a multiple group analysis. Findings. Direct and indirect pathways of drug use patterns were weak The number of overdoses (odds ratio OR = 3.6, 95% CI 2.337--5.562) and male sex (OR = 0.62, 0.421--0.923) were significantly associated with UHCU Regular primary care showed differences across study sites. Conclusion. Targets for interventions to reduce excessive UHCU have been identified. The role of primary care remains unclear.
