POLICY ASK: Develop shared models of care between alcohol services in the alcohol and other drugs sector and those in the family violence sector to better integrate services and enhance outcomes – $460,000 over three years
Develop shared models of care between alcohol services in the alcohol and other drugs sector and those in the family violence sector to better integrate services and enhance outcomes – $460,000 over three years
Governments around the country are keen to identify and reduce barriers to treatment. Shared models of care can overcome barriers to sectors working together so that families affected by violence, child maltreatment and neglect can benefit from better outcomes. They enable systems to better understand the needs of their clients, improve service coordination and provide a no-wrong-door approach to service delivery. Yet in Queensland, shared models of care are rare within the family violence and alcohol and other drug sectors. A lack of knowledge and training mean that staff do not have the confidence to ask questions about areas outside of their areas of expertise and are reluctant to deal with other issues. Shared models of care between the alcohol and other drug and family violence sectors will better address the interrelated and complex needs of clients and their families.
