NCETA’s Ice: Training for Frontline Workers continues to grow

June 2017

Over the past 16 months more than 9,300 workers across Australia and internationally have used NCETA’s highly acclaimed free, comprehensive and evidence-based online resource Ice: Training for Frontline Workers. The resource continues to attract positive feedback from a range of diverse workforces wanting to access readily available information about responding to people using crystal methamphetamine.

"Thank you for making this excellent information available. I particularly like the ways in which the information is presented”.

NCETA continues to update and expand the resource, and Centre staff are working on a series of customised topics to address the professional development needs of specific workforces. These include the following customised topics which will be added to the resource in the next few months:

  • Working with families in which methamphetamine use is a problem
  • Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People and Communities
  • Recovery-focused support.

A series of targeted topics are also being developed for specific workgroups (e.g., police and ambulance workers).

A summary and link to NCETA’s Ice: Training for Frontline Workers is also included in the health professionals’ section of the Cracks in the Ice Community Toolkit, which was officially launched by the Australian Government on 3 April 2017.
