Drugs, Policy and Public Health 5001
Alcohol and other drug use are amongst some of the greatest contemporary public health challenges. Effective alcohol and other drug use policy development requires a high level of background knowledge of the area, knowledge of key population groups impacted by drug use, and awareness of the policy development framework at various levels of government.
Presented by experts at the National Drug Research Institute and other international opinion leaders, this one-week intensive unit aims to provide postgraduate students with a framework to improve integration of research into drug policy formulation at local, state, national and international levels. The unit will be held on 20-24 July, 2015.
