Dans quelle mesure l’utilisation du Fibroscan® participe-t-il à renforcer l’action des professionnels autour du thème des hépatites virales ? - Estimer sous quelle forme et sous quelles conditions un travail de partenariat et de réseau peut être mis en œuvre entre les CSAPA et les services d’hépatologie. - Déterminer quelles difficultés persistent pour améliorer le dépistage et la prise en charge des hépatites virales chez les patients des CSAPA
Initial identified needs
Fibroscan is a non-invasive and painless instrument for hepatic fibrosis measurement. The Centre for the Investigation of hepatic fibrosis at the Bordeaux University Hospital is carring out a longitudinal epidemiological study in 12 CSAPA (addiction treatment centres) in France in order to assess the need and relevance of equipping CSAPAs with this device. Our qualitative study will help understanding epidemiological aspects by examining the views expressed by CSAPA professionals and users who have been screened with Fibroscan.

Objectives (native)
- To assess the representations, opinions and perceptions that French people have in respect to psychoactive substances, to their use and to the main public policies developed in that regard - To measure the evolutions of these representations, opinions and perceptions over time
Initial identified needs
Public authorities are interested in knowing the representations, the attitudes and the expectations that the general public have with regard to drug related policies. They are concerned about the visibility of their actions, their effects and the way in which the innovations are accommodated. Often, their request is sub-contracted at survey institutes step by step, sometimes in omnibus surveys and without much of precautions as for the formulation of the questions. In order to provide reliable interpretations, to facilitate the comparisons and the follow-up of the evolutions, the EROPP regular survey was set up in 1999, guaranteeing scientific quality as well in the questioning as in the analysis. It has been renewed in 2002, 2008 and 2012.

Objectives (native)
Construire un Guide destiné aux professionnels sanitaires et socio-éducatifs des structures spécialisés rassemblant les données connues sur la prévention et la réduction des risques et des dommages de l'usage de cocaïne basée
Initial identified needs
In France, the use of "crack" (freebase cocaine prepared before its sale) is limited to the Paris region and the French Caribbean counties (Antilles, French Guiana). It concerns a population of users who often live in great precariousness and are well-known by some treatment and harm reduction (low-threshold) structures in these territories. Thus the use of the base form of cocaine, so-called "free-base", (self-made by users) is spread over the whole French territory. The "free-base" use is poorly known and poorly identified by specialised professionals. Free-base is used by drug users seen by tretament and low-threshold services in areas where crack is not on sale. It is also used by better integrated consumers, in particular those attending the techno party scene. The project is designed to improve the knowledge and capacity of intervention of professionals working in specialised structures, for two main reasons: - The major health risks associated with freebase cocaine use, including contamination by viral hepatitis (hepatitis C, hepatitis B) when sharing crack pipes, have to be reminded to the users, as well as lethal risk (overdose and other cardio-vascular accident...). Some users do believe they are indeed free from viral transmission and overdose due to the use of the smoking route (some users mistakenly believe that viral infections and overdose are limited to intravenous injection). - Crack and freebase cocaine share the same pharmacological characteristics, a fact that is not always known by users or professionals. Some users smoke freebase cocaine without realizing they actually smoke a substance that is identical to crack.
Initial identified needs (native)
En France, l'usage du "crack" (cocaïne basée préparée en amont de la vente) se limite à la région parisienne et aux départements français d'Amérique (Antilles, Guyane) et concerne une population d'usagers vivant souvent en grande précarité et bien connus de quelques structures de prise en charge et de réduction des risques situées sur ces territoires ; par contre, l'usage de "base" ou "free-base" (préparé artisanalement par l'usager lui-même) concerne tout le territoire français et il est mal connu et mal identifié par les professionnels spécialisés. L'usage du free-base existe cependant chez les usagers de structures de prise en charge et de réduction des risques qui exercent dans d'autres lieux où il n'existe pas de vente de crack, ainsi que chez des consommateurs mieux insérés, notamment ceux qui fréquentent l'espace festif techno. Le projet est destiné à améliorer les connaissances et les capacités d'intervention des professionnels exerçant dans les structures spécialisées, pour deux raisons principales :  Les risques sanitaires importants associés à la consommation de cocaïne basée, notamment les risques de contamination par les hépatites virales (hépatite C, hépatite B) lors du partage des pipes à crack, qui doivent être rappelés aux consommateurs, ainsi que le risque létal (entre autres overdose et accident cardio-vasculaire). Une partie des consommateurs se croient en effet à l’abri de la transmission virale et de l’overdose du fait de l’utilisation de la voie fumée (certains pensent à tort que les contaminations virales et l’overdose se limitent à la voie injectable).  Le caractère pharmacologique identique du crack et du free-base, qui n’est pas toujours connu par les consommateurs et les professionnels. Certains consommateurs fument du free-base sans imaginer qu’ils consomment en réalité un produit identique au crack.

Initial identified needs
In 2005, France counts 250,000 regular cocaine users at but the number of experimentators has regularly increased since 2000. In 2008, about 3 % of the 17-year-old young people have experimented cocaine. The consumption of cocaine under all its forms seems to spread in all the social backgrounds. The coverage of these users requires some adaptations of the care system. In 2010 and 2011, the French National Health Directorate (DGS) and the French Interministerial Mission for the fight against drugs and drug addiction (MILDT) finance five out-patient drug addiction treatment centres for the delivery of specific care for cocain users, in accordance with the recommendations from the French National authority for health (HAS). In 2012, the DGS and the MILDT jointly commissioned the French Monitoring Centre on Drugs and Drug Addictions (OFDT) to assess the implementation of these experimental services.
