The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC) are conducting a survey on amphetamine-type substance use (such as 'speed' and 'ice') among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The survey seeks responses from workers in primary health, AOD and other health-related fields who have contact with Aboriginal or Torres Strait islander clients.
At present, little information is available about the use of these drugs and related problems. However, there are some indications that use may be increasing. NIDAC and NACCHO are working in partnership to gain more information about amphetamine-type substance use in this population.
The survey has 17 questions and will take just five to ten minutes to complete. All responses to the survey are confidential and anonymous. The results will be used to inform policy advice to governments on these important issues.
The survey will be open for responses until midnight on Friday, April 11, 2014.
