Showcasing interventions designed to improve outcomes for clients, this event will inform with new ideas, engage with the evidence base and provide networking opportunities.

Abstracts are now open
NADA invites abstract submissions for oral presentations, workshops, symposium and poster presentations. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your innovative practice or research. Abstracts submissions deadline has been extended to 5pm on 3 February.  No extensions to the deadline will be granted.

We encourage workers and services across all sectors to submit an abstract. Interactive and practice-focused sessions are encouraged to maximize opportunities for conference participants to exchange practice and experience.

Conference themes
Presentations may focus on any topic related to the conference theme, Creating Safe Spaces.

The theme aims to highlight sector achievement and innovation, with a focus on:
• worker wellbeing
• cultural safety
• consumer engagement and peer work
• connection and collaborative practice
• the strength of communities of practice
• increasing inclusion and equity.

NADA encourages presentation proposals from people who are working with or identify as part of communities (including but not limited to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, gender and sexuality diverse communities, and individuals with lived experience). NADA also encourages all presentations to consider the needs and perspectives of these populations. See abstracts information and guidelines.

Speaker:  Dan Howard, former Commissioner for the NSW Special Commission of Inquiry into the Drug ‘Ice’
