Name: Claire Gardner
Position & organisation: Policy, Research & Practice Manager, Drug Arm Australasia
The resource (book, journal) that I use the most is… The Prevention of Substance Use, Risk and Harm in Australia*
Because… despite being a few years old it provides a comprehensive review of over 1000 pieces of international Prevention Literature and considers the Australian perspective.
An online resource I think others should look at is….the soon to be redeveloped Resource Centre website
Because…. it will collate and feature the latest online resources and much more…
I wish I had more information on…The experiences of those working on innovative, practical and evidence informed prevention initiatives
On the weekend you can find me reading…Nothing but social media after a week of research and hours of audio books
*The book Claire is referring to is - Loxley, W. et al. (2004) The Prevention of Substance Use, Risk and Harm in Australia. and it's available for download in full or by chapter here: http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/health-pubhlth-publicat-document-mono_prevention-cnt.htm
