Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre launched

The Australian Indigenous Knowledge Centre is an Edith Cowan University project, building on the former substance use section of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet. The Knowledge Centre has NDRI, NCETA, and NDARC as its supporting partners and provides a dedicated web resource for reducing harms from alcohol and other drug use in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The Knowledge Centre supports practitioners by providing AOD knowledge support and decision support materials including: 

  • Publications
  • Reviews
  • Health practice resources
  • Health promotion resources
  • Programs
  • Policies
  • Organisations
  • Conferences/events
  • Funding
  • Job opportunities
  • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
  • Workforce development. 

The Knowledge Centre will also develop a community portal, a substance use information resource that specifically caters for the unique needs of Indigenous communities and Elders, as well as an ‘app’ for smart phones and tablets. 

The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre was launched by Professor Ted Wilkes at the 3rd National Indigenous Drug & Alcohol Conference (NIDAC).
