NDRI 2021 Symposium program announced
The latest findings from a range of Australian and international alcohol and illicit drug research, plus a practical workshop focused on consumer and stakeholder engagement in research, are features of the 2021 National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) symposium.
The symposium program has been announced and can be viewed here. The program includes presentations and panel sessions on research into alcohol and illicit drug policy, harm, prevention and trends as well as partnership approaches to addressing alcohol and other drug (AOD) harm in Aboriginal communities.
Program highlights include a keynote presentation and panel discussion on minimum alcohol pricing, presentations and a panel discussion on engaging consumers in research, understanding youth drinking trends, increasing use of nitrous oxide, treatment access for methamphetamine smokers, how the alcohol industry attempts to influence policy, First Nations-led policy development and school-based alcohol harm reduction.
For the first time, the NDRI symposium will be available for virtual and in-person attendance, at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on October 6. While attendees will hear from world leaders in AOD research, the symposium will ‘give a voice’ to early career researchers and PhD scholars as well as community partners and consumers of NDRI’s research.
Note: The WA Alcohol and Other Drugs Conference will follow on 7-8 Oct, and a discount is available on registration fees for the NDRI Symposium if you attend both events. Please register for the conference first to obtain your discount code
