  2. Definition

    Codes denoting drug use, including diagnoses, symptoms, observations, medications, behaviours (e.g., “injecting drug user”), referrals and contacts with other services. It includes codes for illegal drugs but excludes tobacco, in keeping with the literature. This list contains prescriptions relevant to treatment for drug use disorder (naltrexone, lofexidine and methadone) as almost all recipients were found to have a history of drug use (Rees et. al., 2022); and excludes those used primarily for pain management. For buprenorphine, the list includes only prescriptions where 90% or more recipients had a history of drug use disorder, as assessed during validation (Rees et. al., 2022).

    These code lists are based on validated, published and comparable lists (Rees et. al., 2022; DelPozo-Banos et. al., 2018; NHS, 2018; NHS, 2019; Syed et. al., 2018; Walsh et. al., 2018) and reviewed by a clinician in the study team (Prof Ann John).
