Alcohol and Other Drug Relevant Education and Training

The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to undertake a review of training courses designed to enhance alcohol and other drugs (AOD) and mental health (MH) workers’ comorbidity (CM) skills. 

Data were collected for the period July 2007 to 30 June 2008, and a report was published in 2009 which summarised details of 1192 AOD, comorbidity (CM), mental health (MH) and psychology courses. A pdf version of the report can be accessed here:
