Injury Prevention Aotearoa Workshops 2015

In May and June we are bringing Dr Paul Quigley, emergency medicine specialist and alcohol harm reduction campaigner, to the regions, for a series of workshops, in partnership with local injury prevention providers. Dr Quigley's keynote address "Using One Injury to Prevent Another - Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention in EDs" covers the national roll-out of alcohol screening and brief intervention in emergency departments.

Two very successful workshops have been held in Porirua and South Auckland in May. Further dates  and venues to be confirmed.
