Seminar: Alcohol and Drug Related Ambulance Attendances trends

Please accept this invitation to attend a seminar presenting findings from the Ambo Project: Alcohol and Drug Related Ambulance Attendances 2011/12.

This project provides detailed statewide and local information regarding non-fatal ambulance attendances where alcohol or other drugs were involved in the presentation, and is a valuable tool for exploration of acute alcohol and other drug related harms in the community, impact on emergency services, and harms in populations not routinely engaged with the specialist AOD sector.

This presentation provides an overview and new findings of this ongoing project which is undertaken by the Population Health Research team at Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre in collaboration with Ambulance Victoria, and which is funded by the Victorian Department of Health.

Please circulate this email to your colleagues.

Time: 11am – 12pm

Date: Tuesday 14th May 2013

Location: Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre, 142 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could confirm your attendance, or provide details of an alternative contact who may be interested in attending to Cathie Garrard by Friday 3rd May via email – cathieg or phone – 03 9412 9959.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
