DANA’S AUSTRALASIAN CONFERENCE 2019 ‘THE POWER OF CONNECTION’
will be held on Friday 16th August. Book your spot for this annual event, this year themed ‘The Power of Connection’, it is a reminder that in this increasingly impersonal digital age, the power to lead and make change is still derived from the relationships that we build.
We have an exciting program featuring sessions dealing with:
- the ‘Developing Brain’, ‘Substance Use in Pregnancy’, ‘Pill-testing’, a ‘Cognitive Remediation’ workshop to highlight just a little of what is on offer.
- three workshops
- papers based on their abstract submissions. A sample of the topics includes – Challenging stigma & strengthening professional connection; Building Australia’s research and treatment capacity for methamphetamine and emerging drugs; a nurse-led ethnography of methamphetamine users in Queensland, workforce development, clinical supervision.
