National Alcohol and other Drug Workforce Development Strategy

17 September 2013


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

An extensive consultation process is being undertaken to provide opportunity for all interested parties to have input into the development of the Strategy. This call for submissions forms part of that consultation process. NCETA invites all interested parties to submit their views on the issue of AOD WFD. The submissions will be considered in the development of the draft Strategy. 

Call for Submissions

Submissions should address the key themes/questions in the submission pro-forma and follow the guidelines for submissions. Please keep submissions brief (preferably 8 pages or less).

There is no need to address all questions. Please only address those which are relevant to you/your organisation.

Email completed submissions to nceta@flinders.edu.au using the subject heading “Attention: Alcohol and other Drug Workforce Development Strategy.”   

The closing date for submissions is Friday 29 November 2013.

To assist those interested in making a submission, a Discussion Paper has been developed to provide background contextual information and to inform and guide the national consultation process.  A copy of the background Discussion Paper, and a longer more detailed literature review, may be downloaded below:
