NADA practice leadership group

Network update

The NADA Practice Leadership Group (NPLG) met in December 2018 to discuss their priority areas for 2018–2020. Among the work that they are prioritising are:

  • standardising clinical standards of care engaging the sector and providing guidance on how to meet criteria
  • withdrawal management driving best practice approach to withdrawal management in the sector
  • standardising position descriptions across sector developing consistency around core practices/experiences needed in the non government AOD sector.

The NPLG are excited to work on these priorities in the next few years to come and believe these key areas will highlight the work of the non government AOD sector. The NPLG now look to organising an Access and Equity Forum to follow on from the NADA Conference.

Vision statement

Connecting clinical practice leaders in the NSW non government alcohol and other drug sector for the purpose of increasing the capacity of service providers to deliver person centred, evidence based practices to improve the wellbeing of clients and their networks of support.

The NPLG was established in July 2015 and now comprise 11 members representing a variety of specialist non government AOD treatment services. All members are clinical practitioners and considered leaders in the sector as evidenced by their professional backgrounds, accreditation status and clinical experience.

The group meet four times a year and meetings are open to other members/organisations as guest speakers only by invitation.

The overall aim of the NPLG is to inform the development of NADA policy and advocacy, and sector program development in relation to sector clinical and therapeutic practices. It will provide a mechanism to consult with experienced, committed and skilled practitioners to advise NADA and other key stakeholders.
