Queensland Alcohol and other Drug Treatment and Harm Reduction Outcomes Framework

It’s official!

The Queensland AOD Treatment and Harm Reduction Outcomes Framework (THROF) is now available for download.

The THROF is the first of its kind in Australia and represents the Queensland AOD sector consensus on what can reasonably be expected of AOD treatment and harm reduction services. It describes the way AOD services can measure their impact and suggests a series of outcome indicators that, when measured and considered in the context of each other and specific treatment types, help to inform service quality.

The THROF is intended for services to use as a guide to self-identify a range of client, organisational and system outcome indicators, which they consider most relevant to their service model for implementation.
