Research output: Working paper/PreprintDiscussion paper

Abstract

A national Alcohol and other Drugs (AOD) Workforce Development Strategy (WFDS) is being developed at the request of the Intergovernmental Committee on Drugs. The project is being managed by the Northern Territory Department of Health and undertaken by the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) at Flinders University.

This discussion paper provides a brief overview of issues relevant to the development of Australia’s AOD WFDS. For a more comprehensive coverage of these issues, readers are invited to examine the full literature review available at www.nceta.flinders.edu.au.

The discussion paper outlines the background and context for the initiation of a WFDS, relevant Australian and international research and data, and potential areas for action to be addressed through the Strategy. It was informed by the preceding literature review. This paper is not intended to provide a definitive coverage of issues; rather, it is intended to be thought provoking, stimulating and in some respects challenging.
