CRA Research Forms with Keys (Including Participant Code Info)
This code is created for all participants in CRA’s outreach who are exchanging syringes. It is unique and reproducible but will not identify someone. It is an anonymous code.
Having a card which matches one’s identity conveys legal exemption to the Hypodermic Syringes and Needles Act (720 ILCS 635 et seq.) and the Drug Paraphernalia Control Act (720 ILCS 600 et seq.) due to the research conducted as part of our work. As well, participants are permitted to carry naloxone for reversing opioid-related overdoses per IL law (20 ILCS 301/5-23).
CRA maintains no information on any participant which would identify them — thus the anonymity of this participant code is assured.
