This direct observation and interview study identified barriers to and facilitators of safe injection practices in outpatient care. Inadequate time and staffing inhibited safe injection practices. The availability of safety needles and prefilled syringes improved the use of safe practices. The authors note that knowledge of safe injection practices does not ensure sufficient implementation.
