Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) Certification Readiness
Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) will develop or enhance their Alcohol and other Drug Practice Plans in response to the needs of their local communities as part of the AOD Certification Readiness Project.
Certification Support Coaches will work with services to prepare them for certification against the Alcohol and other Drug and Human Services Standard (the Standard) – a quality management system standard that is registered with the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).
The project is the result of a partnership between WANADA and the Aboriginal Health Council of WA (AHCWA) and is supported by the WA Primary Health Alliance.
