In June 2017, we commissioned the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) to undertake a project to:
develop a comprehensive understanding of the Northern Territory AOD workforce development needs as defined by the sector;
identify current workforce development gaps and how they could be addressed in a coordinated way;
identify opportunities to strengthen cross-sector referral pathways and responses incorporating the primary health care sector (particularly the Aboriginal community controlled health services sector) and the you and mental heatlh sectors.
An Executive Summary and Summary Report from NCETA are available. They provide an overview of the consultation and findings, and recommendations for the ongoing improvement and support of the Northern Territory AOD workforce.
