Penington Institute has developed a series of videos and factsheets and supporting training to help mainstream Needle and Syringe Programs (NSP), Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, other frontline services better respond to injecting ice use by their clients.
The new resources, Injecting ice in the Country – Healthier Approaches, developed in collaboration with VACCHO, feature interviews with NSP and other frontline workers reflecting on their experiences in managing clients who inject ice.
Free Injecting ice in the Country training is available from Penington Institute as part of the program implementation. The 90 minute sessions utilise the videos to initiate discussions among staff around how they can engage with and support clients who inject ice.
The resources are available at the Penington Institute website.
