Queensland Alcohol and other Drug Treatment & Harm Reduction Outcomes Framework

The Queensland Alcohol and other Drug Treatment and Harm Reduction Outcomes Framework (THROF) describes the way Queensland alcohol and other drugs (AOD) treatment and harm reduction services can measure their impact. It 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. The THROF is not intended to replace organisational policy or compel organisations or workers to measure outcomes in any particular way.
