Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs (APSAD) conference



The theme, Bridging knowledge and practice, was chosen by the Scientific Program Committee to reinforce APSAD's commitment to evidence based medicine and practice. It will feature and exciting program which will include international and national speakers, focussing on new treatment, prevention and policy in the areas of drugs and alcohol research.

The conference will include local issues and content relevant to the region, but will also offer a range of presentations and workshops that have international relevance. Featuring original work from the field, the conference program will continue to encourage alternative presentation styles such as film, yarning circles and artwork whilst maintaining conventional modes of presentation such as oral and poster presentations, participatory workshops, debates/discussions and late breakers.

The conference will also be targeting clinicians and front line workers, with translational research as well as continuing to include the latest content from criminal justice system interventions, workforce development, research, and health policy, to mention just a few topic areas.
