You are warmly invited to submit abstracts
This year’s theme is Addiction is Everybody’s Business - we all have a role to play; whether we are an addiction practitioner, a manager, a peer support worker or are working in primary care. This theme focuses on how we create an integrated system of care that is responsive to people’s circumstances, environment and their life stage. It seeks to increase the interface between key players across the sector including addictions services, primary care, and specialist services like OST and services to offenders so that the person/family is at the centre – rather than the service.
We invite you to submit an abstract for the selection process. Some areas we are interested in are innovative approaches or what you are doing that works, person centred system responses, working with offenders, best practice in OST, community and primary care responses and working with offending populations.

This year’s pre-Cutting Edge Māori hui will be held on Wednesday 6th September 2017 at Te Wharewaka o Pōneke, the Waterfront in Wellington.
8.30am - 5.00pm
Traditionally, this hui has been an opportunity for Māori working in the addiction sector to engage with mana whenua in a meaningful way and to connect with others working in the sector. Our hui this year will be a chance to discuss how we can tautoko each other within our various roles, discuss future initiatives, innovation and creative service delivery and interventions and to celebrate our past successes to assist in planning for 2018.
More information (including an agenda) will be posted closer to the hui. We have the opportunity to take kōrero from this hui to the Cutting Edge Conference, so consider what we might want our colleagues to hear.
