Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander alcohol and other drug use in the spotlight

Date posted: 11 July 2014

Health experts from Poche Centres around Australia are assembling in Darwin, Northern Territory, on July 11 2014 for a Key thinkers' forum to discuss alcohol and other drug use in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The forum will be focusing on the topic Alcohol, tobacco, drugs and other substance use: what's the evidence, what's working, what's not, what are the issues and opportunities for the future?

Chair of the Key thinkers' forum, Dr Tom Calma, AO stated, 'by bringing a range of health experts together we can look at ways we can really improve the delivery of health services to address substance use in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We will be examining what is working and what we can do to advance our understanding.'
