NCETA is conducting a three year (2018-20) project to strengthen organisational, employer, and employee responses to AOD risks in the workplace. This project involves working with workplaces and employees to co-design a toolkit to reduce employee AOD use and help organisations and managers respond to employee AOD misuse and workplace related harms. For more information about this project and how to be involved
NCETA’s Ice online training resource was developed to help a broad range of frontline workers from the health, welfare, education, criminal justice sectors and other workplaces respond to people who use crystal methamphetamine and support their families, friends and co-workers. Topic 5.10 Working with Families was added in March 2018. This topic focuses on workers providing health and human services to people with crystal methamphetamine related issues and their families. It gives workers an overview of the interventions that can help support families, as well as referral options and mandated responsibilities. This is Australia’s only free comprehensive online training resource on crystal methamphetamine. It contains seven modules and 30 topics, and has over 11,000 registered users. To access this resource
