ATDC 2016 CONFERENCE – RETHINKING PREVENTION: A BROADER AGENDA

Date: 12 – 13 May 2016

Location: Hobart, Tasmania 

Overview

The ATDC 2016 Conference Rethinking Prevention: a broader agenda encourages presenters and delegates to discuss how we support and provide prevention, treatment and harm reduction interventions in the current environment and into the future.

Recognising preventative approaches at all levels of our work is one aspect of rethinking prevention. The conference will explore how we prevent harm in multiple ways, not only dealing with substance use activity.

Are AOD policies developed with sufficient attention to prevention; is the stigmatisation and discrimination of substance users preventable; how do we move beyond thinking about ATOD use as simply an individual’s behaviour or choice?

The fundamental question of how to ensure integration between policy, practice and research will underpin the conference program, guaranteeing a stimulating two days for all attendees.
