Cultural Ways of Responding to AOD and Injecting Drug Use in Aboriginal Communities

 

Overview

This workshop is designed for health professionals based in the Perth metropolitan region of Western Australia (WA) who work with Aboriginal people who inject drugs.

The training will focus on skills to reduce harm from alcohol and other drug use (AOD) and reduce transmission of blood-borne viruses (BBVs). Topics presented will cover culturally secure AOD models, impacts of colonisation and effective cultural communication.

Aboriginal AOD workers are particularly encouraged to attend. Attendance at the workshop is free, however registration is essential. Applications close 12 April 2017.
