QNADA is committed to supporting our member agencies to deliver high quality services to individuals, families, and communities affected by alcohol and other drugs.
QNADA members provide a range of alcohol and other drugs services including residential treatment, withdrawal management (detox), individual and family counselling, outreach, case management, intoxication management, continuing care and harm reduction services. We actively engage and support staff at all levels of each member agency, recognising that every part of an organisation contributes to the quality of services provided.
Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services National Minimum Data Set (AODTS NMDS)
QNADA supports the collection of the AODTS NMDS for non-government services.
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) manages the AODTS NMDS, which assists in the monitoring and evaluation of key objectives of the National Drug Strategy. The AODTS NMDS is one of the primary sources for capturing the extent of AOD services (government and non-government) delivered in Queensland. When combined with the National Drug Strategy Household Survey, the data paints a picture of emerging trends and their impact on service delivery.
If your service contracts with the Queensland Department of Health, the commonwealth Department of Health, or Primary Health Networks you will likely be required to contribute to the AODTS NMDS.
The Collector of Alcohol and other Drug Data Sets (CADDS) is QNADA’s AOD client management system. CADDS can simplify collection of the Alcohol and Other Drug AODTS NMDS, state and commonwealth progress reporting, and provide reports to inform management and board decisions.
Member services are able to access CADDS with training, IT and data collection support free of charge. If you are interested in viewing CADDS and discussing its potential implementation in your service please contact us contact us to find out more.
