Alcohol and other drug use is one of the major causes of disease burden in Australia, yet risk factors attached to it are modifiable and disease and sickness can be prevented.

COVID-19 has seen a significant rise in calls to crisis and support services, along with increased consumption of alcohol, cannabis and tobacco. There are strong links between the use of alcohol with adverse social health impacts, including domestic and family violence.

General practices in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region are invited to participate in the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) project from October 2020.

Participation will include complimentary education and training, and resources to support practices in implementing meaningful quality improvement activities related to screening for substance abuse. This project will support requirements for General Practice Accreditation and the Practice Incentive Payment (PIP) for Quality Improvement (QI).
