Knowledge Centre Cafe

Senior Research Officer, Avinna Trzesinski, conducted a Knowledge Centre workshop on the final day of the conference. Participants that attended did some practical activities relevant to their work and gave positive feedback, saying that they will take what they learnt back to staff at their organisations. All of the promotional items were taken, which included our illicit drug use and volatile substance use reviews, as well as pens, brochures, and notepads.
