National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander drug and alcohol resource finalist in Internet award

Date posted: 28 August 2015

The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre is a finalist in the Diversity category in the prestigious 2015 Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs). The ANZIAs recognise organisations, businesses and individuals who excel in delivering accessible, innovative information and secure resources to a diverse and wide community on the Internet, both in Australia and New Zealand.

The Knowledge Centre provides the evidence base to reduce harmful substance use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It provides fast, free, online access to a comprehensive collection of relevant, evidence-based, current and culturally appropriate alcohol and other drug (AOD) materials and information that can be used in the prevention, identification and management of alcohol and other drug use in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. The Knowledge Centre is funded by the Australian Department of Health.

Edith Cowan University, HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew, says 'We are very proud to be a finalist and congratulate the winner, the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine and other finalists. I would also like to acknowledge the important contribution of our staff, project partners the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction, the National Drug Research Institute and the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, our reference group members and all of those who have made a positive contribution to this valuable initiative.'

Project Manager, Kathy Ride, said of the finalist nomination 'Readily accessible up-to-date information and knowledge are required by those working to reduce harmful substance use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This acknowledgement recognises our contribution to this important area.'
