So what’s the Knowledge Share all about?
ISSUP promotes effective and evidence-based practice through the exchange of knowledge on its website. ISSUP’s website features a Knowledge Share section that provides users with the latest insights from the fields of substance use prevention and treatment.
The Knowledge Share forms a significant part of the organisation’s online presence.
The section’s content is organised into four key areas:
- News: Recent news items of value to people who work or share an interest in the field of substance use disorders, particularly prevention and/or treatment.
- Resources: Tools to help in practice such as lesson plans, information leaflets, websites and more.
- Publications: Details on new books and other recently published works in the field available to either buy or download.
- Research: Jargon-free summaries of the latest scientific research relating to the treatment and/or prevention of substance use disorders. This section also provides links through which people can access more extensive journal abstracts and, occasionally, full articles.
These areas can be further sub-categorised by theme, country or affiliated organisation.
