The Goal

Need for Program

Ice is a growing concern for Australian nurses and other healthcare professionals. It is destructive for health, families and communities, and creates a raft of medical, psychological and social problems. Nurses and other health professionals are increasingly exposed to people who are affected by this drug, but often without really understanding the health issues involved. It is important that nurses and other health professionals have access to correct evidence-based information about these substances and the management of those affected by them.

Purpose of Program

The purpose of this conference is to inform nurses and other health professionals about the illicit drugs ice and methamphetamine, including their effects on people, the community and how recovery can be achieved.

Your learning outcomes:

Use evidence-based knowledge about ice and methamphetamine so as to create a safe environment for all concerned
Understand the ramifications of ice and methamphetamine use in the community and how to implement methods of harm reduction in your setting
Know the principles of rehabilitation and recovery and apply evidence-based approaches to assist sustained abstinence
