These guidelines provide nurses and midwives in New South Wales with support and a benchmark for alcohol and other drug use assessment and care in daily practice including:

  • an outline of general principles for alcohol and drug assessment, intervention, communication with patients, and managing intoxication, overdose and withdrawal
  • specific information on commonly used substances, with details of symptoms, management and risks
  • information on pharmacotherapies for dependence on alcohol and opioids
  • appendices that provide withdrawal assessment scales and other useful information
  • handouts on selected drugs that you can photocopy and give to your patients
  • a glossary that describes terms related to alcohol and other drug issues
  • a resources list of tools, literature, organisations, emergency numbers and useful websites.

These guidelines are accompanied by a supporting Policy directive: nursing management of drug and alcohol issues in the delivery of health care.
