The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to investigate issues among Indigenous alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers. This review forms the initial component of the resulting project, and is accessible both individually and as part of a resource package for Indigenous AOD workers: the Indigenous worker wellbeing resource (2012).
The literature review presents major findings of key factors impacting on the wellbeing of Indigenous workers in the AOD field. The review examined over 400 reports, journal articles, and other documents relevant to stress, burnout, and wellbeing of workers responding to Indigenous AOD issues.
