On Monday 24 September 2018, NADA and the NSW Ministry of Health facilitated a forum to consult with NSW based non-government residential rehabilitation providers on three areas of current and future work priorities. The forum was well attended, with representatives from over half of NSW Health funded residential rehabilitation present. The purpose of this communique is to summarise discussions from the three sessions and to outline next steps.
The Ministry will incorporate findings from the forum and will share the overall findings from the scoping project with NADA and residential rehabilitation providers.
NADA and the Ministry will continue to consult with residential rehabilitation providers to understand what type of guidance material the sector needs to guide practice.
The NGO Statewide AOD Working Group with representatives from contracted NGOs, LHDs, primary health networks, NADA and the Ministry continues to provide a forum to work through contracting improvements.
