The program was most relevant for those interested or engaged in evidence informed policy development, including researchers, policy analysts/makers and service providers.

For those unfamiliar with DPMP, the program aimed to improve Australian drug policy through three key activities:

·         generating new research evidence;

·         providing tools for policy makers to better use research evidence; and

·         studying how policy actually gets made.

Thank you if you were able to join us and hear about new research in alcohol and other drug policy and participate in discussions about policy issues.
