National Methamphetamine Symposium: Making research work in practice

April 2015

The National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) will be hosting the National Methamphetamine Symposium: Making Research Work in Practice on 12 May 2015. The symposium is being held because, over the last few years, there have been significant:

  1. changes in the way methamphetamine is used, particularly ice.
  2. advances in our knowledge about methamphetamine. 

These changes impact how we respond at both the policy and practice level. 

This symposium expands NCETA's new program of work aimed at supporting the AOD treatment sector respond to methamphetamine-related issues. Frontline health (doctors, nurses, counsellors) and community workers, supervisors and service providers, and policy makers will all enjoy the benefits of attending this conference. Delegates will: 

  • Find out about latest epidemiological and treatment research and how to apply this to your work
  • Gain an understanding of methamphetamine users
  • Learn about:
    • Patterns and trends of methamphetamine use
    • Latest policy, prevention and harm reduction responses
    • Best practice treatment and intervention options
  • Learn how to apply this information to improve responses to methamphetamine use. 

Confirmed speakers include Ann Roche, Nicole Lee, Amanda Baker, Paul Dietze, and Rob Hester as well as many more.
