Lecture Overview

Harm reduction is an integral pillar of our national framework for addressing substance use in Australia. The research is clear: harm reduction saves lives, money and reduces crime and the burden on our public health system. Geoffrey Ahern takes you through some key harm reduction strategies to ensure you can provide nonjudgemental care to every patient you treat.

Over the years, he has gained extensive experience in emergency and trauma, rural nursing, alcohol and other drug counselling, and psychiatric nursing across both the public and private sectors. He holds a masters of health science (mental health and addiction). Geoff is particularly fascinated by the impact that exercise, nutrition, community, meaning and purpose, and practices like yoga have on a person’s mental health, as well as living a simple life of reflection, contentment and wonderment. See Educator Profile
