GP and Pharmacist AOD Consultation Project

24 October 2018

Local GPs have told us that their capacity to support patients affected by substance abuse and addiction is limited. As a result, we are coordinating a major consultation project to learn how we can support GPs and community pharmacists with AOD treatment and patient support.

We have commissioned Lives Lived Well to conduct this six-month consultation project. Dr Graeme Judson, a highly experienced Addiction Medicine Specialist, is the project clinical leader and will direct the consultation process with GPs and pharmacists.

GP and Pharmacist Survey

The first step in this consultation project involves identifying the context of our region's AOD work within the primary care environment. A short survey for GPs and pharmacists will be used as a basis for the development of a 'Communities of Practice Framework' designed to provide targeted support to people doing AOD work in the primary care sector.

You can participate in the survey only, or can register your interest to be involved in the consultation process more broadly.
