NADA practice leadership group

Network update

The NADA Practice Leadership Group continue to discuss the implementation of the NADA Capability Framework, with the group directing its attention to clinical supervision, with specific focus on remote supervision. A particular highlight of the September meeting was discussions on building workforce capacity and confidence around domestic and family violence and the different angles at which this can be addressed.

Other highlights of the September meeting were:

  • the supervision (professional, clinical, cultural, and remote) support continues to be important; the NPLG is working towards supporting the needs of the sector, especially around support pathways for managerial positions.
  • the NPLG recognises the need to support Aboriginal workers in non-Aboriginal community controlled organisations through regular catch-ups.
  • the NPLG actively contributes to NADA’s access and equity research, providing advice on future work.

Vision statement

Connecting clinical practice leaders in the NSW non government alcohol and other drug sector for the purpose of increasing the capacity of service providers to deliver person centred, evidence based practices to improve the wellbeing of clients and their networks of support.

The NPLG was established in July 2015 and now comprise 11 members representing a variety of specialist non government AOD treatment services. All members are clinical practitioners and considered leaders in the sector as evidenced by their professional backgrounds, accreditation status and clinical experience.

The group meet four times a year and meetings are open to other members/organisations as guest speakers only by invitation.

The overall aim of the NPLG is to inform the development of NADA policy and advocacy, and sector program development in relation to sector clinical and therapeutic practices. It will provide a mechanism to consult with experienced, committed and skilled practitioners to advise NADA and other key stakeholders.
