Integrating contingency management for methamphetamine use into routine clinical care in Australia

This project explores options for implementing contingency management for methamphetamine dependence in different services in Australia. The research will involve four phases: i) an expert working group to identify different possible models of contingency management and how they can be adapted to different service settings; ii) a scoping review to provide information on different available contingency management models, evidence around their implementation, and barriers to implementation, iii) focus groups with representatives from indicative implementation settings and interest groups, and iv) a survey of people who use methamphetamine to test the acceptability of, and preferences for, different contingency management models and the components thereof.
