Indigenous AOD Workforce
There are comparatively few Indigenous people employed in the health and human services field. Consequently, Indigenous workers who respond to AOD issues are an especially important segment of the AOD workforce. They include Aboriginal Health Workers, Aboriginal Mental Health Workers, Aboriginal liaison officers, as well as Indigenous doctors, nurses, community health workers, social workers, drug and alcohol clinicians, and mobile patrol staff. Indigenous AOD workers are often not well supported but are nonetheless required to carry out a wide range of demanding roles including being 'on call' 24/7.
