Are you an alcohol and other drug (AOD) nurse?
Do you want to have your say on workforce issues?
The Drug and Alcohol Nurses of Australasia (DANA) in conjunction with RMIT University invite you to participate in a research project entitled State of the Workforce: 2020. This project aims to map and explore issues pertinent to alcohol and other drug (AOD) nurses in Australia and New Zealand.
This project aims to map where AOD nurses work across Australia and New Zealand, examine employment trends for AOD nurses and talk to AOD nurses about issues pertinent to their workforce. DANA will use this information to produce a comprehensive report on the state of the workforce, and to continue their advocacy work to advance the role and scope of the AOD nurse.
Your participation involves completing an online survey. You can complete this from your device at a time of your choosing. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes, and asks for the postcode of your workplace, demographic information about yourself and the nature of your role.
Additionally, you can choose to participate in a follow-up telephone interview to discuss workforce issues with a researcher. This interview will take approximately 30 minutes, and we will endeavour to schedule this at a convenient time for you. To indicate you wish to participate in a follow up interview, please ensure you check the box and provide a preferred time and telephone number on the final page of the online survey.
Your privacy is important to us and all results will be de-identified prior to being included in any DANA publications arising from this project.
Thank you for considering participating in this project.
