The Standard on culturally secure practice (alcohol and other drug sector) has been developed for alcohol and other drug (AOD) agencies to gain a formal certification of a culturally secure practice.
The Standard contains seven performance expectations and criteria. Agencies are awarded a 'good practice' certification if they meet 80% of the essential criteria for each performance expectation.
The Standard is supported by a separate document, the Interpretive guide to the standard on culturally secure practice. The Interpretive guide helps agencies to achieve certification by providing examples of how to interpret and apply the standards.
The Western Australian Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (WANADA) developed the document in consultation with the WA AOD sector, and with Indigenous AOD services Australia-wide. The Drug and Alcohol Office of WA and the Australian Government's Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health funded its development.
