NCETA launches new AOD knowledgebase

Leave a comment

The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction has just launched a new website

 
The site has four knowledge areas; alcohol, cannabis, pharmaceuticals, and methamphetamines.  At present only the “alcohol” section of the website has been finished.
 
The information presented is intended for clinicians, researchers, policy makers and the general public.  All of the information has been presented in an easy-to-read, easy-to-navigate question and answer format.  They have evaluated and analysed a number of key resources to provide the answers, meaning that the end user does not need to wade through the huge amounts of information available and try to critic the information themselves.  The information provided in the answers is brief and references are included as a separate page. 
 
The Alcohol Section of the Knowledgebase contains more than 130 frequently asked questions (FAQs) about:
 · Consumption patterns
· Alcohol use and the workplace
· Alcohol-related harms
· The impact of alcohol consumption on crime and violence
· Treatment
· Young people
 
It is envisaged that the website will be updated frequently to ensure the information is always current.
