Pharmaceutical Drug Misuse in Australia: Complex Problems, Balanced Responses [pdf 3,361 KB]

Over recent years, there has been growing awareness of potential harms that can result from the misuse of pharmaceutical drugs. This concern culminated in the decision by the Ministerial Council on Drugs (MCDS) through the Inter-Governmental Committee on Drugs (IGCD) to take decisive action to develop a comprehensive set of strategic responses.
This task was overseen by the Victorian Department of Health who in 2010 called for tenders to undertake the development of Australia’s first national strategy to address pharmaceutical drug misuse. The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) headed a consortium that was awarded this tender.
As part of the process of developing the strategy, a comprehensive examination was undertaken of relevant contextual factors. This document provides a summary overview of these contextual factors. It is hoped that this document will contribute to understanding the complex nature of pharmaceutical misuse and will help inform appropriate preventative responses.

Trainers Talking Training: An Examination of Vocational Education and Training for the Alcohol and Other Drugs Sector in Australia [pdf 3,236 KB]

In 2011, the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) conducted a national survey of training providers involved in the delivery of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) qualifications through Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) across Australia. This review was undertaken by the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) at Flinders University to examine aspects of alcohol and drug training courses offered through Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) within the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

The aim of the study was to examine the content and delivery of AOD qualifications, the demand for and availability of these courses, and to develop a national database of RTOs which deliver these qualifications. In addition, the extent to which cannabis content was addressed within these qualifications was assessed. Training providers’ interest in supporting the development of cannabis-specific training and associated resources was also ascertained.

The background, rationale, methodology, results and implications of the project are presented in this report.

Workplace Drug Testing: Evidence and Issues [pdf 7,861 KB]

This report investigates the role of workplace drug testing in improving workplace safety. A critical review of relevant literature identified the extent and nature of alcohol or drug related risk to workplace safety. While the research literature indicates that there is an association between alcohol and drug use and workplace injuries and accidents, particularly amongst younger workers, males, and certain industries and occupations, the proportion of injuries caused by alcohol or drug use is relatively small. A growing body of evidence indicates that other factors, such as fatigue, noise, dangerous working conditions, and sufficient training and supervision, contribute more to the incidence of workplace accidents and injuries.

Young Workers and Workplace Safety: Guidelines for managing alcohol and other drug risk [pdf 3,156 KB]

These guidelines were developed by NCETA as part of a project funded by SafeWork SA. This project examined ways to best manage the issue of elevated occupational health and safety risk experienced by young workers. These guidelines focus on alcohol and drug related workplace safety risk and contain strategies to minimise this risk. However, the guidelines have wider applicability beyond addressing drug and alcohol concerns and may be of assistance to managers in delaing with young workers' safety in general.
