National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) Workplace Publications - Methamphetamine: Effects & Responses

There is increasing concern about the use of methamphetamine in Australia. In particular, growing attention has focused on the use of the crystalline form of methamphetamine known as ‘ice’.

There is currently a lack of understanding about who uses methamphetamine, whether more people are using now than in the past, and what risks and harms are associated with use.

NCETA have developed a factsheet that details current patterns of methamphetamine use, changes in frequency and mode of use, emergent effects and negative consequences, and intervention options.

RACGP - Bowel Cancer: Taking the test

General practice can play a vital role in the expansion of the National Bowel Screening Program.

Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, with about 17,000 diagnoses a year and approximately 80 deaths per week.

To help facilitate early diagnosis, the Department of Health’s National Bowel Cancer Screening Program provides the faecal occult blood test to eligible patients at no cost. This non-invasive procedure is safe and can be performed at home, and has an estimated 83% sensitivity and 93% specificity, making it an extremely effective detection tool.

The RACGP have a range or resources for GPs to learn more about bowel cancer, and its diagnosis and treatment. For more information please click here


Drug and Alcohol Services SA - Public Information Survey

Drug and Alcohol Services South Australia (DASSA) is a statewide health service that offers a range of prevention, treatment and education services for all South Australians.

If you have sought information through one or more DASSA services and channels, such as the Alcohol and Drug Information Service (ADIS), Library and Resource Service, clinical services, or through the SA Health website, DASSA invites you to complete the survey.

DASSA has recently established a Public Information Review Panel consisting of clients, carers, community members and staff to review how DASSA provides information to the general public; and to consider the usefulness and relevance of this information.

Your responses will guide the work of this Panel to improve DASSA services. Responses will remain anonymous. The survey closes on Wednesday 8 June 2016.
