Format Conference
Presenters Keynote Speakers: Prof David Nutt (UK); Professor Alexandre Copello (UK); Professor James Rankin; Professor Carla Treloar; Professor Greg Dore; Dr Steffanie Strathdee (US); Mr Geoff Ward; A/Professor Michael Baigent
Description The conference title, Bridging Knowledge and Practice, was chosen by the Scientific Program Committee to reinforce APSAD’s commitment to evidence based medicine and practice.

This conference, being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from Sunday 24 – Wednesday 27 November 2013, will feature an exciting program which includes international and national speakers, focussing on new treatment, prevention and policy in the areas of drugs and alcohol research. The conference will include local issues and content relevant to our region, but will also offer a range of presentations and workshops that have international relevance. Featuring original work from the field, the conference program will continue to encourage alternative presentation styles such as film, yarning circles and artwork whilst maintaining conventional modes of presentation such as oral and poster presentations, participatory workshops, debates/discussions and late breakers. This year we will also be targeting clinicians and front line workers, with translational research as well as continuing to include the latest content from criminal justice system interventions, workforce development, research, and health policy, to mention just a few topic areas.
