Victoria's Ice Action Plan is committed to the development of a standard frontline worker Ice training package for workforces that are providing services and support to Ice-affected individuals. The National Centre for Education and Training (NCETA) has been commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services to develop the training package.
The development of the training package is being informed by an online consultation process. This is an important opportunity for all HACSU members to have their say about what sorts of training they need to improve their capacity to deliver services and respond to the needs of people affected by Ice and their families and carers.
As you may be aware, in June, mental health nurses were invited to participate in a survey regarding the specific training needs of MH and ED nurses when responding to people presenting with methamphetamine challenges, this survey is for all HACSU members including those MH nurses who completed the previous scoping survey.
NCETA is also keen to know if you have any existing resources that you would like to share with them that could be incorporated into the training package. Any existing training materials and resources will be appropriately acknowledged.
The online consultation can be completed by clicking on the following link: online consultation.
It should take no more than 10 minutes of your time to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary and any information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence. You will not be individually identifiable when we analyse the results or in any subsequent reports.
Please promote this online consultation throughout your workplaces and networks.
