Development and implementation of the National alcohol treatment guidelines for Indigenous Australians

 

Overview

The National alcohol treatment guidelines for Indigenous Australians were developed to provide essential and reliable information and guidance on how to deliver culturally respectful healthcare, and how to identify and respond to emergency and non-urgent alcohol-related health problems experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. The Guidelines were developed through Australia-wide consultations with Indigenous and non-Indigenous healthcare providers, educators, clinicians, researchers, and Indigenous community members.
