Identifying Needs and Priorities

"We were frustrated… A drug addict was brought in to talk about what it was like to live on the street, but that was a misrepresentation of the issues because until you sit down in their community and walk the streets that [addicts] walk, I think it\'s difficult to have an understanding of what\'s going on.”

– Steve Mathias in CMAJ May 15, 2001; 164 (10)
