QUEENSLAND AOD CONVENTION - FINAL REPORT

The final report from the 2014 Queensland Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) Convention is now available.  The Convention was held in Brisbane on 23 July 2014 and brought together more than 100 service managers, policy officers and other key stakeholders from government and non-government alcohol and drug services across the state to discuss good practice in service delivery, with the aim of informing the development of a statewide framework for the AOD treatment sector.

This report documents the information gathered through the pre-Convention surveys, as well as the content of delegate discussions on the day. The Queensland AOD Statewide Framework is currently being drafted and will be released for comment by Convention delegates in November.

The Convention was a joint initiative of the Queensland Network of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies (QNADA), Dovetail, the Queensland Indigenous Substance Misuse Council (QISMC), the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC) and the Alcohol and other Drug Service Improvement Group (AOD-SIG) and was made possible by funding provided by the Queensland Mental Health Commission (QMHC), the Queensland Department of Health and the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE).
