Working with Primary Health Networks
We continue to work with Primary Health Networks across the State to support their understanding of the sector and their options for investment.
In the Northern Qld PHN region, we have established two alcohol and other drug treatment services reference groups (in Cairns and Townsville), to harness the expertise of the local alcohol and other drugs treatment and harm reduction sector to support effective service delivery across the region.
In the Brisbane North PHN region, we have been funded to deliver a service integration and workforce development project, which aims to support the alcohol and other drug workforce through activities that promote joined up assessment processes, referral pathways, and support continuous quality improvement, evidence based treatment and service integration/coordination.
In the Brisbane South PHN region, we have been funded to establish and support a collaborative, made up of representatives from non-government and government specialist alcohol and other drug services. The collaborative is tasked with identifying and addressing barriers for clients attempting to access alcohol and other drug treatment in the Brisbane South region.
