Making it happen: responding to Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) issues across the sectors



The Making it Happen Conference is a collaborative event organised by the Western Australian Drug and Alcohol Office, Palmerston Association, Department for Child Protection, Department of Corrective Services, Department of the Attorney General and the Mental Health Division (Department of Health).

The 2009 Conference is unique in that it is the first time these government and non-government agencies from specialist drug and mainstream sectors will come together to present best practice interventions and initiatives to respond to clients affected by drug and alcohol issues.

This event will provide numerous opportunities for professional networking, collaboration, discussion and debate around the Conference title: "Making it Happen": Responding to alcohol and other drug issues across the sectors.

Closing date for abstracts: Friday 12 September 2008

HealthInfoNet Cafe

Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet had a strong presence at this conference. Two staff members were present throughout the two days of the conference and were busy during the breaks informing delegates about the AIH and demonstrating the features of this web resource. Particular emphasis was given to the substance misuse pages because these had particular relevance to the work of most delegates.
