2021 NDRI Symposium

Working Together: Community Collaboration in Drug Policy and Practice Research

Wednesday 6 October, 2021
Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre

As a research institute that strives to conduct high quality research to support evidence informed AOD policy, strategies and practice, it is crucial for us to work with a range of partners to meet common goals. This ensures we ask research questions relevant to the real world and maximises the likelihood that results and recommendations can be translated into policy and practice.

In showcasing our research, the 2021 NDRI symposium will highlight the depth and breadth of these partnerships with, for example:

  • communities and people affected by drug use and associated harms
  • clinicians, educators and public health practitioners
  • those who work in the government and the community sector, and
  • researchers and research groups across Australia and internationally.

If you are interested in hearing about the latest alcohol and other drug (AOD) research or in contributing to future research, then our hybrid symposium is for you.
