Activity 2: Enhanced understanding of specific drugs and comorbid conditions

In this two-hour interactive education activity health care providers choose between a number of alcohol and drug / mental health topics (approximately four topics over a two-hour event). The topics are presented as video lectures, PowerPoint presentations and may include an information fact sheet. See the left-hand menu for the topics.

After viewing the content participants can talk about the implications for their patients and local services that may assist with their management. See Group event flyer for more information.

Alternatively health providers can view the online alcohol and drug lectures in their own time. See Solo event flyer for more information.
