These resources are in addition to two recently published eBooks and webinar recordings on topics which include ice and alcohol harm reduction.

HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew says ‘These latest additions to our digital communication media takes into account the many ways people learn, what their level of education is and how much time they have or how much detail they need.

These new AOD resources complement our existing suite of digital tools and new platforms to deliver knowledge and information to the sector.

We know that there is a need for up to date evidence-based information to assist those working in the AOD sector.’

You can view all of the Knowledge Centre HealthInfoBytes and Webinars on the HealthInfoNet YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/healthinfonet

The Knowledge Centre provides online access to a comprehensive collection of relevant, evidence-based, current and culturally appropriate alcohol and other drug (AOD) knowledge-support and decision-support materials and information that can be used in the prevention, identification and management of alcohol and other drug use in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.

A yarning place, a workers portal and community portal are other key resources.

The work of the Knowledge Centre is supported by a collaborative partnership with the three national alcohol and other drug research centres (the National Drug Research Institute, the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction, and the National Drug and

Drug and Alcohol Research Centre). www.aodknowledgecentre.net.au
