AOD Client Engagement


Welcome to the Project Gauge alcohol and other drug client engagement and participation toolkit. 

This introductory resource was developed to assist alcohol and drug services to create partnerships with their clients to improve the safety and quality of their treatment and care.

Each of the following 5 modules are brief and will only require 10 to 15 minutes to complete.  We recommend completing them in order using the Mozilla Firefox web browser if you do not have the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Further reading is provided within the modules and listed separately below for easy accessibility. We encourage workers who are interested in a more detailed discussion about AOD client engagement and participation to check out the Project Gauge discussion paper.

Whilst targeted toward Queensland public health services, the toolkit is relevant for other AOD service contexts. It should be used in conjunction with The National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, EQuIP Standard 2: "Partnering with consumers".
