NADA practice leadership group

Network update

The NADA Practice Leadership Group has been hard at work over the last couple of months providing feedback on advocacy positions around the effectiveness of treatment, contributing to a set of standardised AOD specific position descriptions and developing ideas regarding the upcoming NADA Access and Equity project. June will see members of the NPLG come together for a planning day to contribute to some key NADA projects for 2019/20—including healthy relationships, increasing consumer participation in AOD service delivery and the all-important NADA Conference 2020. Stay tuned for more updates and keep an eye out on Frontline for tips and resources to inform best practice in AOD treatment.

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.
