Alcohol and the social determinants of health: an equity lens on interventions with guest presenter Dr. Jane Fischer

May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Knowledge Centre will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday 14 May 2020 with Dr. Jane Fischer from the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) titled ‘Alcohol and the social determinants of health: an equity lens on interventions’, and will follow with an open Q & A session. The webinar will run for approximately 40 minutes and is free to attend.

Although Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are more likely to abstain from alcohol and less likely to consume alcohol at risky levels than non-Indigenous people, why is alcohol associated with a disproportionate amount of harm?

Drawing on work undertaken by the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Knowledge Centre, and others; this webinar considers the relationship between alcohol, inequity, and the social determinants of health. Subsequently, through an equity-lens, it examines the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing alcohol-related harm and how the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander AOD workforce can be supported.

The webinar will be held at:

  • 12:00pm (NSW, Vic, Qld, Tas and ACT)
  • 11:30am (SA and NT)
  • 10:00am (WA).
