NADA practice leadership group

Network update

The NADA Practice Leadership Group (NPLG) held its quarterly meeting in December. The network:

  • invites NADA members to contact them for advice or to collaborate to help you deliver person centred and evidence based practices
  • acknowledges there is more work to be done around data collection and reporting. Service delivery needs to come hand in hand with timely data collection; and KPIs for specialist non government AOD services need to be streamlined to reduce burden of data reporting
  • has raised concerns on the impending end of contracts and early notification of continuity of funding, the implications of timing on staffing and service delivery.

The NPLG is looking forward to their meeting in March 2020, as they have invited key representatives from NSW Health, Department of Social Services and Public Health Networks to consult on the group’s activities for the next year.
