Frontline in Focus Session 2: Cognitive Impairment and AOD Services
Current research suggests that one in two clients accessing AOD treatment will have some level of cognitive impairment, with 40% of all clients having moderate to severe cognitive impairment.
In this online presentation you’ll learn more about the prevalence of cognitive impairment for people accessing AOD services and the latest principles and approaches to support clients.
Case Studies: To maximise relevance to your work, Jo would like to review 1 or 2 case studies during the session. If you are interested in preparing a case study, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an outline of what is required.
