Abstract

People who use illicit opioids may be at increased risk of fatal overdose during and shortly after hospital admisisons. This study aims to (a) describe fatal overdoses that occur during hospital admission or shortly after hospital discharge, and (b) test whether people who use illicit opioids in England are at increased risk of fatal overdose during hospital admission and shortly after discharge from hospital. The methods will include a narrative review of cases in the National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths (NPSAD); and a self-controlled case series using linked mortality and hospital data in England.
