ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
Insight's Check Tools are ideal for use by GPs, in hospital settings, by generalist health and community service workers or by specialist mental health and AOD treatment workers who are conducting initial appointments, drug diversion sessions and/or opportunistic engagement with clients and patients. You are free to use the tool in any way that suits you. Parts can be skipped or the sequence re-ordered, or you can simply read through the tool word-for-word. The completed exercise can then be given to the client to take away as a reminder of your conversation.
All Check Tools are free to download and use, and lists the national 24/7 alcohol and drug hotline so that they can be used anywhere in Australia.
A hard copy tear-off pad containing 25 sheets is available free of charge for Queensland-based workers. A postage fee applies if you wish to order additional copies.
NB: You will be required to provide your email address when ordering or downloading the tools so that we can invite you to participate in an evaluation of the tool at a later date. Participation in this evaluation process is voluntary.
