Description

Bendigo Community Health Services presents the second All Time High community workshop for health professionals, emergency services workers and the general community.

Doctor Monica Barratt will discuss emerging issues for those working with people who use drugs.

Topics covered during the workshop will include:

  • The rise of the darkweb in the changing face of how people purchase drugs in Australia
  • The arrival of new psychoactive substances and the laws that govern them.
  • The effectiveness of real-time drug monitoring systems for users that operate in other parts of the world and how they could work to remove the most harmful substances from Australian drug markets.

Dr Barratt is a social scientist at the Drug Policy Modelling Program in the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre at the University of New South Wales.

Dr Barratt has spent 15 years researching the social and public health implications of digital technology for people who use illicit and psychoactive drugs.

She is an expert in the area of drug policy reform and ‘pill testing’ and other testing procedures that deliver information about the content and purity of drugs to users.
