About the Webinar

This webinar will be essential viewing for Victorian AOD clinicians involved in completing and receiving the comprehensive AOD assessment for people seeking admission to residential withdrawal. 

In this webinar AOD clinicians highlight the important elements essential in quality assessment for admission to residential withdrawal services. This webinar has been developed after consultation with the wider AOD sector and residential intake workers across Victoria. The presentation alongside the power point will be valuable when inducting new staff to screening and assessment roles and as a reminder to existing staff when referring to residential withdrawal services.
