About this event

A serious harm related to injecting drug use (IDU) is blood-borne viruses. The consequences of blood-borne viruses (BBVs) can have devastating effects for individuals, families and communities. This training will focus on skills to reduce harm from AOD use and reduce the transmission of BBVs. Topics presented will cover culturally secure AOD models, impacts of colonisation and effective cultural communication.
