Forensic Foundations

The Forensic Foundations E-learn is designed for new Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) sector staff to provide foundational knowledge to support the provision of AOD treatment of forensic clients. This one-hour e-learn will assist you in navigating the forensic AOD system and processes. The content was developed by VAADA, and the e-learn was designed by Caraniche. Specifically, the e-learn course will provide you with foundational knowledge about the following:

  • how a forensic client is defined
  • the differences between forensic and voluntary clients
  • the key stakeholders and their roles and responsibilities
  • the AOD funding system (targets and loadings for forensic treatment)
  • treatment options for forensic clients
  • the main referral pathways between the criminal justice and AOD treatment systems
  • clinical safety, supervision and self-care

This E-learn provides the foundational knowledge that is further expanded on in the Forensic Fundamentals training workshop.
