Abstract

In Australia, a wait for Opioid Replacement Therapy (ORT) has been reported although the magnitude is unknown. This study examined data recorded by one urban publicly funded ORT clinic (from 2009 to 2011) to identify if people (n = 803) were waiting for ORT assessment appointments and to explore how triage influences access to ORT. Data analysis incorporated descriptive methods and the use of Kaplan-Meier estimator of the cumulative incidence function. The implications and limitations of this study are included with further research suggestions
