This national conference focusses on end of life care for people with problematic alcohol and drug use. It will showcase findings from a unique research project exploring end of life care and problematic substance use. This will include the voices of people with experience, families, friends, carers, the professionals who work with them, and what existing evidence tells us.
The first Drugs, Alcohol, Women and Families Conference will focus on women, families and young people affected by substance abuse and will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to come together to discuss good practice.
