Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screen Test (ASSIST) workshops

Hosted by Brisbane North PHN

GPs are invited to join public health physician and specialist in Addiction Medicine, Assoc. Professor Robert Ali and the Alcohol and Drug Clinical Advisory Service (ADCAS) for an educational workshop.

The ASSIST program offers practical support for the management of patients presenting with problematic substance use; to that end, the ASSIST screening tool has recently been integrated into Best Practice medical software.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will:

  • know when to use the ASSIST screening tools to identify substance use
  • know how to do a brief intervention for alcohol and other drug concerns
  • understand how to apply appropriate treatment responses to concerns about alcohol and other drug use
  • identify treatment planning required for patients with alcohol and other drug issues
  • understand ADCAS on-call specialist support and clinical advice services
  • be familiar with the local services available and how to access them.

Register for Wednesday 5 October 2022 workshop by email: nickola.warnick@brisbanenorthphn.org.au. No cost to attend.
