In Chapter 7, “A Sentinel and Design Model of Evidence Collection on Acute Drug and NPS Toxicity: The Euro-Den Plus Project”, Luke de la Rue, David M. Wood, and Paul Dargan explore the challenges that clinicians face in dealing with patients with acute NPS toxicity and the necessity of implementing a systemic collection of data on presentations to hospital emergency departments with acute drug and NPS toxicity at regional, national, and international levels. It presents the pioneering work of the EURO-DEN Plus project, which utilizes sentinels in emergency departments across Europe to collect data on NPS harms. It also shows the benefits to clinicians and how to use and navigate the information that EURO-DEN provides.
