call for abstracts

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.
