Alcohol and other drug use present some of the greatest contemporary public health challenges. Effective policy development requires a high level of background knowledge of the area, knowledge of key population groups impacted by drug use, and awareness of the policy development framework at various levels of government. Presented by experts at the National Drug Research Institute and other international opinion leaders, this one-week intensive program gives participants the historical and epidemiological background to alcohol and other drug use and policy in Australia. It covers relevant theoretical models, and provides practical insights into enhancing drug policy with specific populations (e.g. injecting drug users, Indigenous people), the community and in emerging areas such as drugs and the internet. The overall aim is to provide participants with a framework to improve integration of research into drug policy formulation at local, state, national and international levels.
Program participants will receive a certificate of completion.
