The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to investigate issues among Aboriginal alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers. This report is part of a series of three reports stemming from the resulting project, and is accessible individually and as part of a resource package for Aboriginal AOD workers: the Indigenous worker wellbeing resource (2012).
As part of this project, a national online survey was conducted in 2008 among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal workers from various AOD organisations providing services to the Aboriginal population across Australia. This report outlines the key findings following analyses of the 294 valid responses (62% Aboriginal, 37% non-Aboriginal, 1% unknown). Information on the survey background, results, and discussion is also presented in this report.
