This subject supports skill and knowledge development of the rural generalist in analysing, planning and delivering assessments and interventions for consumers with Alcohol and Other Drug use issues and complex comorbidity, in a rural and/or remote context. Students will explore theories and models that have formed current thinking on Alcohol and Other Drug use in Australia before considering the use, harm and treatment of Alcohol and Other Drugs in the rural and remote context at both a national and local level. Students will gain an understanding of specific populations and groups vulnerable to the harms of substance use and extend their knowledge of substances. Interventions to reduce harm, those to screen and assess and intensive intervention are explored with a focus on psychosocial interventions. Primary concepts relating to health behaviour change, trauma and crisis management, coordinated care and Rural Generalist Service Delivery Strategies are also considered in meeting the challenges of working with consumers with Alcohol and Other Drug use issues in this environment.
